Public Engagement Awards
Wolfson researchers Maria Turri (CFP) and Zoe Davies (CEPM) have each received Centre for Public Engagement Large Grant funding scheme awards.
Maria’s submission, Creating an online community of democratic knowledge production in 'arts for mental health’, will bring together practitioners, service users, artists and academics to coproduce an online community where individuals and groups interested in the arts for mental health can engage in knowledge production, insight sharing, and learning. The project will be launched at the Mad Hearts conference in June 2021.
Zoe’s winning project is Food Flips Online: Encouraging healthier choices by children via a fun online game. The interactive game can be played both in the classroom and at home and teaches children how to interpret colour coded nutrition labels on food and drink products. By exploring levels of difficulty for different age groups, the game can be incorporated into a variety of learning themes in the primary school curricula.
