Under the AHRC Connected Communities Programmes, Keele Management School in collaboration with the New Vic Theatre hosted a two day interactive workshop on 'Bridging the gap between theory and practice'.
The workshop was opened by Professor Harry Scarborough, KMS Director, and featured academic and practitioner speakers from the UK, France, Poland and Romania.  More than 40 participants attended the event representing academia, community organisations and individual members.  Sue Moffat, New Vic Borderlines Director, hosted and facilitated the second day which saw a great deal of artistic creativity from the participants and resulted in the creation of an interactive audio-visual installation which will be showcased at the AHRC Showcase Event in Edinburgh in July and in Japan in November. 

The workshop is the result of an AHRC collaboration between Keele (Mihaela Kelemen, PI, and Anita Mangan, CI), Open University, Brunel University and Edinburgh University as well as New Vic Theatre, Glass House Community Led Design and Mondo Challenge Foundation.
