University members may find the following update from the Ashmolean Project Portal of interest:
A new series of collaborative opportunities is being fostered by the Ashmolean Museum and the TORCH Knowledge Exchange programme through the Project Portal in order to strengthen existing ties between the Museum and the academic community. We want to encourage both researchers and graduate students to develop project ideas linking their research to the museum’s forthcoming exhibitions. We hope that university members will take advantage of the potential of the museum’s exhibition content to enrich their own work, communicate to a wider audience, and to develop new perspectives and questions from which to address familiar issues.
We are now inviting applications from University members for projects that will engage creatively with the 2014-2015 exhibition programme on British Artists.
