The Knowledge Exchange: A Interactive Conference

Academic Engagement with the Creative Sector

There is a long tradition of academics working with businesses and other partners in the creative sector. As we become more connected, information and collaborations (enabled by new technology and business practice) further promote this fruitful exchange. This conference is aimed at exploring and propagating new mutually beneficial exchanges between academia and the creative industries. 

Specifically we are interested in:

Contributions from Contributions about
  • Academics developing new understandings of the creative sector
  • New processes, tools or approaches that facilitate knowledge exchange and collaboration
  • Creative sector professionals interested in undertaking research and collaborating with academic partners
  • Insights, case studies, results and evaluation of knowledge exchange in practice

This will not be a traditional ‘sit and listen’ conference. There will be a high degree of both experimentation in the form of the conference and interaction throughout the conference.

Submission: We invite you to submit a 2,000 word paper for peer review and inclusion in conference activity. We strongly encourage a wide range of papers and approaches, but equally would encourage submissions to include an indication of the research question(s)/issues addressed in the paper, and the approach employed in addressing these. Please include a 200 word summary.
