I’m very pleased to announce that an internal seed funding call for the NCAD + UCD Strategic Alliance is now open! I’m part of the project management team coordinating a range of activities and initiatives between the two institutions — in particular, heading up the development of a new NCAD + UCD academic research centre in Creative Arts and Critical Cultures. In addition to the Centre, we are also developing a new MA in Interaction Design and an interdisciplinary Summer School, ‘City Life’. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, and do share this seed funding call with colleagues and postgraduate students at NCAD or UCD.

Project & Seed Funding Call – Creative Arts and Critical Cultures

Deadline: 16 March 2015
Contact: Amy Smith, NCAD + UCD Project Coordinator (amy.smith@ucd.ie) / Dr Emily Mark-FitzGerald, NCAD + UCD : Creative Arts & Critical Cultures (emily.mark@ucd.ie)

Supported by the Higher Education Authority of Ireland, the NCAD + UCD venture aims to identify, examine and develop the potential practical and operational synergies resulting from closer ties between the two institutions. The venture encompasses teaching projects, research initiatives, and cross-institutional programmes and events, with a view to deepening the relationship between NCAD and UCD.

We are happy to announce a Seed Funding Call which seeks to encourage closer collaboration and support the establishment of a new shared NCAD + UCD academic research centre in Creative Arts and Critical Cultures. The funding scheme will provide support for projects that are ambitious and innovative and that will lead to new knowledge and capacities. It offers staff and postgraduate students the opportunity to apply for internal funding to enhance existing and future activities.

This competitively-awarded funding is open to staff and registered postgraduate students of UCD and NCAD, in any department and discipline. Funding will be awarded to projects that involve interdisciplinary collaborations, and promote cross-overs between artistic activity, cultural production and intellectual engagement. A maximum of €5,000 will be awarded to any one project (smaller applications are also encouraged). A total fund of €30,000 has been made available.
