Imagine: Writing in the Community

A collaboration between communities in Rotherham and the University of Sheffield

University of Bristol and AHRC Connected Communities Programme

This case study was produced in 2018 as part of the Common Cause Research project.

Imagine: Writing in the Community was part of a broader initiative called 'Imagine', a five year project from 2013 to 2017, delivered by a consortium of lead universities including the Universities of Brighton, Durham, Sheffield and Huddersfield and a network of community partners. The focus for the overall Imagine project was the context of civic engagement with a significant emphasis on the co-production of research through Community University Partnerships (CUPs). The Imagine programme had four work packages: The Social Context; The Historical Context; The Cultural Context; and The Democratic Context. The University of Sheffield coordinated the Cultural Context work package which included a strand called ‘Writing in the Community’ as one of several projects delivered in partnership with communities.
