Collaborations between Food Researchers and the Arts: a creative appetiser

Interested in engaging with the arts in your research on food?

Exeter Food—in collaboration with Arts & Culture (University of Exeter), Creative Arc, and the Co-Production Oracle—is organising a workshop for Exeter Food network members who would like to work more closely with creative practitioners (from any artform) but are not sure where to start. We will share case studies to provide inspiration; introduce you to useful people at the University who can help shape your ideas; talk about pathways to funding; and provide a short workshop to give you a taste of this work in practice.
