DCLabs at the AHRC Creative Commons Event

12:00pm, Tue 21st June 2016

Ron Cooke Hub, University of York

On 21 June 2016, the AHRC Commons first national event, Common Ground, was held at the Ron Cooke Hub and TFTV on the University of York’s Heslington East campus.

Over the course of a packed and exciting day a wide range of activities took place across nine zones ranging from theatrical, operatic, and poetry performances to debates, keynotes, film showings, and tech hacks.

The Common Ground activities were run by participants from organisations across the UK including Higher Education Institutions, cultural organisations, museums and galleries such as the British Library, National Archives, Science Museum, Tate London, the National Railway Museum, Sage Gateshead, Rolls-Royce and community groups.

AHRC Commons Fellow, Professor Richard Clay, said:

“This event was a wonderful celebration of the AHRC Commons community, which provided an opportunity to share knowledge and expertise, to establish new networks and projects, to be inspired, and to further develop the case for the importance of arts and humanities research.”


DCLabs opened our doors for people to come and have a look at DCLabs demos from 12 - 2pm. In addition we hosted Patrick Gibbs from Christianity and Culture, with a Digital Heritage demo.
