The primary aim of this e-group will be to promote collaborative research
and the dissemination of findings from academic and community-based
studies, projects, and initiatives, as well as fostering the exchange of
information re. meetings, seminars, conferences etc of mutual interest.
The majority of messages will comprise progress reports of existing
projects; information regarding new course modules and research findings;
feedback re. key government and art councils policies and strategies;
as well as listings of events, conferences, and seminars and funding
opportunities. The membership will include academic and community
researchers, practitioners, archivists, curators, librarians, and
community activists and local historians. Equally important are people
based in voluntary arts and cultural organisations, art councils, art
centres, and interested members of the public.
