REACT - Heritage Sandbox Ideas Lab

Where: Watershed Media Centre, 1 Canon's Road, BS1 5TX

When: 13 December 2011 1:00pm to 5:00pm

REACT is a collaboration between the Universities of the West of England, Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter and Watershed. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as one of four UK Creative Economy hubs, REACT will generate economic and social impact by supporting partnerships between Arts and Humanities researchers and Creative Economy partners. Heritage Sandbox is REACT's first call for ideas. We're looking to support six ground-breaking and adventurous collaborations that develop innovative experiences for the heritage sector. Projects could range from an interactive installation for a museum, a new way of navigating a theme park, or a location aware game for a stately home. The possibilities are vast. To qualify for funding you must have a project that uses Arts and Humanities research with a Creative Economy partner. The process of application involves participation in one of two half-day workshops and a written application. Workshops will take place in Exeter and Bristol. Places are limited and so will be issued on a first come first served basis. Full details about the scheme, including the application form and overview are available here. The workshop will give you an opportunity to learn more about the scheme, share and refine your idea (if you have one), get inspired and meet potential collaborators. Heritage Sandbox will seek to support shared learning, creative collaboration and brilliant ideas. The workshops are designed to support these objectives.
