The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) invites applications to attend its Shanghai workshop, 24-26 October 2017, on the theme of Development through the Creative Economy.

The Newton Fund has collaborated with the AHRC to create this opportunity.

Applications are welcome from anyone eligible under AHRC's standard rules working in any of the following fields.

  • Design, particularly for innovative problem solving and sustainability.
  • Heritage, particularly for sustainable economic growth and social cohesion.
  • Creative and performing arts, in their contribution to social cohesion and economic sectors.

The three days of the workshop will each have different focuses (one for each of the major topics listed above), and aims to bring together British and Chinese academics for discussions and exploration of key ideas. The funders hope to create long-lasting relationships through this and future events, and RIDO can't encourage you strongly enough to apply!
