    • ‘Open up’ Unlocking the potential of archives & collections through creative collaboration Alisdair Aldous and Katie Mills, Knowledge Transfer Consultants University of the Arts London (UAL)
    • UNIVERSITY COLLABORATION Universities offer a range of approaches to knowledge transfer: Special Projects Research Events KTP/Shorter KTP Sponsored PhDs Workshops Consultancy Studentships Exhibitions Bespoke solutions KT Fellowships Talks Student Commissions Competitions Client Projects Ideas generation
    • THE SUPPORT WE OFFER OPEN CONVERSATION We engage in an exploratory conversation to identify your organisational needs, and to propose potential solutions that the University could provide. FUNDING BODIES We can help identify the appropriate funding for your project e.g. JISC, AHRC, and shape the project to meet funding criteria. LEVERAGING MATCH FUNDING By demonstrating the business benefits, we can help you gain financial support from within your organisation to help lever significant match-funding. KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER PARTNERSHIPS (KTPS) Help organisations with limited budgets gain access to valuable university expertise and services by accessing external funding.
    • OUR EXPERTISE, YOUR PRIORITIES • Archives and collections management (80+ collections) • Conducting research • Developing new/existing audiences • Developing an educational offer • Creating an on-line/digital presence • Generating revenue from the collection • Increasing access to the collection • Designing exhibitions and engaging audiences in new ways • Taking innovative approaches to interpreting and curating • New approaches to marketing and communication • Creative Interventions and artistic responses
    • Developing and diversifying an educational offer through user needs analysis and design Bridgeman Art Library KTP
    • “It is helping Bridgeman Education reach the next generation of graphic designers and picture researchers, and creating a new income stream for the business.” - Pandora Mather-Lees, Managing Director, Bridgeman Art Library Outcomes: - Development of e-commerce service targeting the educational sector incl. improved management of the company’s website - Creation of educational web pages and seminars in collaboration with educational bodies and institutions - New process developed to improve digitising efficiency - New search categories created (e.g. Graphic Design, Fashion) to expand Bridgeman’s sales potential in the Education market - Exploration of new business models for licensing images
    • Increasing visitor numbers and audience diversity through interactive experiences Southbank Centre KTP
    • “KTP is a really creative and powerful way of the Southbank Centre furthering its own ambitions and its own ideas about itself in collaboration with another intuition and another individual who has very different skills to that of the people who work here.” - Shan Maclennan, Creative Director of Learning and Participation at Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre. Outcomes - An increase in visits to the Southbank’s flicker site from less than 10 per day to over 5,000 - Approx. 11,500 individual interactions with the photo booth - KTP also delivered interactive installation, audio tours, spatial redesign and training workshops Photo copyright: Southbank Centre

    • Creative Interventions, Responses and Campaigns V&A Museum
    • “Live performance within the collections challenges the common assumption of the museum as a passive place. Responsive and interventionist performance have the ability to reactivate both the artefact and the space.” - Peter Farley, Senior Academic Lecturer, Wimbledon College (UAL) Photos: copyright V&A
