Creative Interruptions: grassroots creativity, State structures and disconnection as a space for 'radical openness'

Funder: Arts and Humanities Research Council
Duration: October 2016 - October 2019

Creative Interruptions will contribute to the AHRC's Connected Communities research cluster on 'diversity and dissent' by recognising the key role of the creative industries (including the arts, heritage, media and other forms of cultural production) as major agents for social change, but also by highlighting the role of communities to interrupt dominant discourses and representations in ways not available in authorised cultural discourse.
