Knowledge Exchange Fellowships


Led by Professor Steve Benford (University of Nottingham) in collaboration with NTU and the University of Leicester, Archives, Assets and Audiences is a AHRC Creative Knowledge Exchange Project that aims to generate new thinking and new partnerships by focusing on archives in relationship to the new possibilities of access and co-authorship offered by digital media. Nottingham Contemporary is a partner in the project alongside a diverse set of museums, cultural institutions, and archives, locally and nationally.

As part of the project Nottingham Contemporary is collaborating with two Knowledge Exchange Fellows. Tim Coughlan (Horizon Digital Economy Research, University of Nottingham) was awarded a Fellowship allowing him to act as ‘technologist in residence’ within the Lace Market area of Nottingham, exploring the invention and re-invention of this area as a site for art institutions and creative industries. Néstor Valero-Silva (Business School, NTU) was awarded a Fellowship that will explore the place of archiving within the institutional culture, aims and priorities of Nottingham Contemporary.
