The Manchester Institute for Arts, Health and Social Change, Critical Research Collective begins with the energy and vision of the innovative and interdisciplinary culture of its host, Manchester Metropolitan University. Drawing on internationally recognised creative and critical expertise in Arts for Health, the medical humanities and cultural disability studies, our research is outward looking, inclusive and evolving. We are committed to the development of collaborative, accessible and socially engaged research with both academic and community partners. Greater Manchester offers multiple opportunities for rich and innovative thinking. We will not be burdened by the complexities of institutional or conventional disciplinary boundaries, but will embrace the challenges and undertake research that has relevance to health and social change from multiple perspectives.
TO THE POWER OF TEN
Alongside the development of specific research projects, we will host To the Power of Ten, a series of themed conversations about the arts, creativity, health and wellbeing across venues in the ten districts of Greater Manchester. In June 2019 we will recruit a research associate to co-ordinate this work and undertake some cross-sectoral research. Please keep an eye on this website for more details.
