SPRINT Project recognised for public engagement!
This week, Prof Jennifer Cumming, Dr Mary Quinton, and Dr Grace Tidmarsh from the SPRINT Project were delighted to receive a "Highly Commended" recognition in Public Engagement as part of the University’s Light of Understanding Award. This was presented by Professor Dominique Moran at the University of Birmingham’s Impact Leaders’ Forum award ceremony, held in the University’s Edgbaston Park Hotel.
The award recognises our recent public engagement exhibitions and events at The Exchange, which is located in the municipal bank in Centenary Square in Birmingham and aims to encourage community collaboration and engagement in research.
Our exhibitions (‘Making Home a Place to Be’ and ‘A Place to Call Home’) and associated events sought to draw public attention to the difficulties that individuals who experience homelessness face, and to challenge perceptions and views of home and homelessness.
You can still visit our A Place to Call Home exhibition. This is free to access at The Exchange until 4th November 2023.
