What are we doing?

We are creating a Health and Care research EXPO to highlight the work that goes on in our local area led by creative and innovative people and organisations  in both practitioner and academic settings. Promoting what we do in our region has never been more important.  The EXPO is an opportunity not only to celebrate but also to shape future conversations and work programmes around health and care research priorities in our local region and against the national strategic backdrop.  How are we doing it?The event will be held on a digital platform. We want it to be shaped by you and led by practitioners and the work they are doing. It will focus on the researcher’s voice and journey, sharing a wide spectrum of lived experiences and learning. When are we doing it?EXPO will run live for a month, officially launching on Monday 21st March at 12pm and run through until 14th April (inclusive). You don’t need to book to view the gallery and exhibits only the live events. Some of our live events are now available to book. Please see links below. At the end of the live run, the space will be curated into a format that showcases everything that has happened throughout the EXPO. There is no cost implication to either attend or present your work. The content from the gallery space will be available for you to view as and when you wish throughout the month, as well as options for booking / joining onto any live events we have running each week.  Do you want to be involved?There will be a gallery space for showcasing research exhibits. If you have something that you feel would work in a gallery space and you want to share it with others please contact us and we will connect you to our project team who can help you shape them into materials to display in the gallery. We’d love to hear from you!  How can you get involved? Please let us know if you would like more information or would like to discuss how you can participate.
