Innovations through Art: Heritage, Archives and Curating as Practice

Curating, Archives and Heritage connects researchers exploring creative methods for engaging with archives and other cultural institutions. It supports the development of reciprocal, interdisciplinary partnerships, transforming perspectives on how cultural heritage and archives are preserved and shared. Innovative approaches to curating and exhibition making as research have drawn together practitioners and art historians (e.g. Grayson, King, Lotery). We have worked with institutions ranging from the Hayward Gallery (Wilson and Wilson) and Pavilion (Park) to the Bagpipe Museum in Northumbria (King). Innovative engagements with heritage include projects led by ECRs (Schofield), while high-level partnership has been key to projects such as MCAHE. Tyne and Wear Museums and Archives (TWAM) and Woodhorn museums co-supervised three CDAs in teams also comprising art history and practice-based staff.
