Connected Communities

The Connected Communities online resource provides a repository of several hundred collaborative projects in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The site links to a series of reviews tracing the longstanding and complementary traditions of collaborative research practice in the arts, humanities and social sciences – this includes reviews of participatory action research, feminist and critical studies, open/crowd approaches, and history from below. These reviews provide a powerful and accessible entry point to researchers and community partners wanting to build new collaborations to develop knowledge and action together. One example is the Common Cause resource, which documents the challenges and opportunities faced by individuals and cultural organisations from minority ethnic communities building relationships with universities to produce powerful knowledge. It also includes case studies of partnerships and projects that are ongoing. Visit the site to explore its many other resources.
