Collaborative PhD Award offered by Kingston University and the Crafts Council

Kingston University and the Crafts Council are collaborating to offer a Collaborative Doctoral Award, supported by LDOC - September 2018 start

‘Diversity in Craft’

The project will investigate the role in craft discourse and production of interactions between different cultural practices, expanding knowledge and generating evidence to inform policy and practice to better champion and develop diverse craft practices among makers from migrant and diasporic communities.

By examining the contribution, and interplay, of diverse cultural traditions to craft, evidence produced will give fresh direction to arts policy and programmes to enable diversity of practice and engagement to grow. Exploring craft practice in a sample of BAME communities, the project will identify how different craft traditions interconnect, and will interrogate the drivers of those connections.

Note the application deadline of 8 January 2018.
