Public Engagement Matters is a blog for public engagement activity from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Sheffield. It originated as a course blog for a seminar series called Practical Public Engagement, aimed at postgraduate and early career researchers who wanted to explore the practical and intellectual issues surrounding public engagement. These seminars still run for PhD students and look at the value and ethics of public engagement, finding partners and developing projects with research in mind, writing funding bids and project management. Students who complete the series are eligible to apply for small amounts of funding to support projects of their own.

This blog is somewhere for all members of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, staff and students, to talk about public engagement, discuss issues and ideas related to this topic.

  1. Hello,

    This is a great blog. I thought you might be interested in a symposium we (Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield) are organising on 23rd May 2013 at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, entitled ‘Public Engagement and Impact: articulating value in art and design’. The symposium will explore issues around how to capture, measure and communicate the value of art, design and related disciplines in terms of public engagement. Please see http://www.ica.org.uk/37062/Talks/Public-Engagement-and-Impact-Articulating-Value-in-Art-and-Design.html for more info and to register to attend.
