Making Futures – CREST Researcher Mobility Scheme

Making Futures 2013 builds upon the success of the previous (2009 and 2011) international research conferences, and will be held on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 September 2013 at the Mount Edgcumbe estate on the River Tamar opposite the city of Plymouth, Devon, UK.

Making Futures aims to bring together an international cast of practitioners, academics, curators, campaigners, activists, and representatives from associated organisations and agencies, to investigate contemporary craft as a ‘change agent’ within 21st century society – particularly in relation to global environmental and sustainability issues, socially embedded practices and social innovation.

This year Making Futures and CREST will be offering up to three bursaries for research-active staff and students to participate in the conference. The bursariesare being made available through the CREST Researcher Mobility Scheme, which encourages inter-institutional collaboration and networking between researchers working in a variety of disciplines across the CREST network.
