Collaborative Learning in the Arts, Society and the Humanities (CLASH)

Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Collaborative Skills Development programme: 2014/15.

UCL's The East India Company at Home project, in collaboration with Osterley Park and House (a National Trust property in Hounslow) and members of the community local to Osterley Park.
  • Are you an Arts and Humanities PhD student, post-doctoral or early career researcher?*
  • Are you based at UCL, King’s College London or the School of Advanced Study?
  • Interested in museums, heritage and the cultural sector?
  • Would you like practical training to develop your public engagement and communication skills?
  • Would you like the chance to develop your public engagement skills working with a cultural partner?

If yes, then Collaborative Learning in the Arts, Society and the Humanities (CLASH) could be for you.  

We will provide a programme of training and support around public engagement. Our 4 Cultural Partners, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Trust, the Share Academy (London's smaller museums) and the Cultural Institute at King's, will provide 12 CLASH Fellowships, which will be open on a competitive basis to participants and will each be supported by up to £2,500 (for public engagement activities).

The deadline for registering your interest in CLASH has now closed. We will be back in touch in September with more details of upcoming training and opportunities for those who have already expressed an interest.


This programme is open to Arts and Humanities PhD students, post-doctoral and early career researchers from UCL, King's College London (KCL) and the School of Advanced Study (SAS).

Participants must be either:

  • within 8 years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or
  • within 6 years of their first academic appointment.

Priority for places will be given to AHRC-funded PhD students and early career researchers but, researchers funded from other sources are very welcome.

When will this happen?

If you register your interest, we will be in touch over the summer to tell you about CLASH Fellowship opportunities, and to give you more information and the chance to book your place on introductory training modules in the Autumn Term 2014. We’ll also let you know about the skills specific training opportunities which will follow in the Spring term!

The CLASH Fellowship application process will take place by December 2014 and the Fellowships themselves will take place between January 2015 and July 2015.

Please register your interest to find out more:

CLASH is funded by an Arts and Humanities Research Council Collaborative Skills Development grant.
