ESRC Festival of Social Sciences 2019!

We are really pleased to be hosting an ESRC Festival of Social Sciences event again this year. Our event – Creativity and Co-Production: Possibilities for Research – will take place on Tuesday 5th November 2019 from 2.00pm – 4.00pm at The Circle, Sheffield.

Excitingly the event is co-hosted by our Student Collaborators from Greenacre School, Barnsley, who we have been working with since March on ways to make research accessible to all children and young people.

Through the Festival of Social Science, the ESRC aim to:

  • Encourage, support and create the opportunity for social science researchers to engage with non-academic audiences
  • Promote and increase awareness of the social sciences and ESRC’s research
  • Promote and increase awareness of the contributions the social sciences make to the wellbeing and the economy of the UK society
  • Enable the public to engage with social science research
  • Engage with teachers and young people and to raise their awareness of the social sciences.

You can read more about the Festival here.

In this lively and interactive event, you can learn about the politics and practicalities of researching with disabled young people from disabled young people themselves. We will launch our Living Life to the Fullest Co-Production Toolkit – an invaluable resource that will guide you in innovative ways of working in collaboration with disabled young people, whether you are a researcher, professional, practitioner or student. The event will include short and creative presentations, group discussion, and a Q&A, as well as showcasing young people’s artwork from across the project.
