After Regeneration: lessons for urban policy from connected communities
Connected Communities has funded over 280 projects and is working with over 400 community groups. The projects are diverse, reflecting different communities, different places and different academic traditions. A new book seeks to capture how these projects, given all their different aspects, have contributed to debates, discourses and practices of policy.
The AHRC would like to put together a team to discuss production of a volume in the Routledge Companion series around community/participatory arts/cultures, which would draw on the work, practice and findings of CC projects across the field.
They are looking for interested parties to form an editorial team, to gauge a sense of whether there is sufficient scope energy and interest in it from across the network, what its contents might look like as so on.
Are you interested? As an editor? A contributor? Both/ either? Do you have ideas on what should such a Companion contain, broadly? If so, email George Mckay for more information
