Our Mission

We are an interdisciplinary network involving several universities and researchers designing and piloting training activities for upskilling the Arts and Humanities (A&H) community in creating, managing, and using digital media and data to unlock their potential.

Funded by the AHRC call ‘Embed digital skills in arts and humanities research‘, we aim to support individuals and organisations, including Higher Education Institutions (HEI), Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAMs) and the creative industries, to improve their current and future digital skills, in particular those needed to support their medium and long term vision.

Our projects work towards establishing a community of practice to support researchers and practitioners, as well as their organisations, to develop their skills in creating, managing, using and sharing data. We know that communities of practice already play a key role in supporting learning and upskilling.

Within our projects, we are piloting various activities supporting the community. In particular, we pilot the following:

  • Developing a curriculum and strategies to identify skills gap analysis for research groups or institutions to identify requirements for current and future digital skills training.
  • Providing a range of training opportunities, both online and onsite, during the year including on-site and online workshops and webinars.
  • Providing experience-based learning opportunities within organisations including galleries, libraries, archives, museums and heritage sites, as well as creative industries to develop skills and jointly explore the value and role of research data.
  • Promoting open research practices and robust data management practices including enabling access to open data.
  • Identifying and signposting infrastructure and equipment which can be useful to develop skills.

Further information about each project can be found under the section Centres on the top of the page.
