The British Academy Summer Showcase 2019: call for applications

We are seeking creative proposals to exhibit at the 2019 Summer Showcase.

Taking place from 21-22 June (with a Private View on the evening of 20 June), our free festival of ideas for curious minds celebrates the outstanding humanities and social science research shaping our world.

Up to 15 interactive exhibits, based on research funded by the British Academy (or the British International Research Institutes) will be given a space in the British Academy’s building during the festival run.

This is a fantastic public engagement opportunity for award holders to share their research findings with different audiences.

Why apply?

  • Share your research with different audiences, from students and lifelong learners to the VIP audience invited to attend the Private View.

  • Inspire the next generation. In 2018, over 50% of our visitors were under 35 and over 100 were school children. 

  • Raise your profile. The Showcase will be promoted widely through digital channels and in the media - successful exhibitors will reach thousands more people than just those who attend the event. 

  • Get public opinions. Find out what people think about your research and gain valuable feedback. We also share with you the results of our public evaluation, making it easy to see your impact. 

  • Get lasting benefits. We provide expert public engagement training you can take back to your team. 

We are looking for current award holders whose work is sufficiently advanced, or past award holders still in the process of disseminating their research findings.

Application deadline: 29 November 2018
