ArtLess is an AHRC funded project at Birkbeck led by Professor Carol Watts and Dr Ben Cranfield. Shaped by PhD students and early career researchers from a variety of research backgrounds, The ArtLess Group explores ways to unite the Arts and sciences to promote new, innovative, collaborative research. One of the project’s outreach programmes includes creating research exhibitions for Touring Exhibitions and Bury Art Museum.
The aim is to use The ArtLess Group as a way of developing projects, working on them collaboratively, and sourcing funds and shared connections where possible. It also functions as a network for information. The ArtLess Group also looks outward to work with community and public partnerships as well as local Birkbeck initiatives.
