RIKE Alliance Vision Statement

The CHEAD RIKE Alliance is a collaborative, entrepreneurial partner in the UK’s creative and cultural economy – demonstrating how our research creates impact by shaping practice, activating innovation and informing policy. The Alliance aspires to influence policy through research, practice and advocacy, keeping curiosity and exemplary arts processes at its core.

The RIKE Alliance engages with external organisations including other research partners, international institutions, local and national agencies, policy makers and our colleagues in member institutions to expand and enhance public understanding of arts, media and design key subject areas and their vital social, economic, political and cultural impact.

We are keen to nurture research leadership, research-curious staff and early career researchers to broaden the scope of research, innovation and knowledge exchange, to generate new insight and to inform teaching, research and professional practice.

We aim to be a vibrant, well-connected and confident community of practice for new ideas and methods, with no limiting boundaries, a reputation for boldness and a growing international profile.

The CHEAD RIKE Alliance welcomes new members from any CHEAD member institution. If you would like to join the mailing list, please contact: anna@chead.ac.uk
