How are researchers and artists working together to engage the public with research? How can these relationships be facilitated? What do these collaborations mean for our understandings of art, science and research? Who benefits from these collaborations? To what extent has engagement with the arts improved public access to and engagement with research?

This guide for collaborations between researchers and artists, from 2022, tries to answer these questions. It has been developed with expert input from the University of Leicester, the NCCPE and a wide group of collaborators including artists, researchers, and engagement brokers.
