Creative Informatics Small Research Grants Showcase

Join Creative Informatics to find out about the exciting projects their small grant holders have been working on!

About this Event

In April 2020, Creative Informatics funded five ’Small Research Grants’ for Early Career Researchers, to explore innovative uses or applications of data in creative and cultural sectors. Over the summer, they’ve developed exciting research on topics ranging from the experiences of creative freelancers during Covid, through to new accessible interfaces for gestural controls.

Join via Zoom to hear these projects share their findings, and discuss new opportunities for Creative Informatics research.
