2024 Programme

We are delighted to invite you to the third edition of the Knowledge Exchange & Wellbeing Residential, organised by the NWCDTP and REAlab, in collaboration with the National Trust, which this year will be held on the marvellous island of Anglesey, in Wales, from the 14th to the 17th of May 2024, with an introductory online training session on the 30th of April.

We will engage in training, collaboration with a local cultural partner and time in nature so that you can leave inspired and energised and apply your learning to design new collaborative Knowledge Exchange projects as part of a PhD placement, Post-Doc application or any other funded collaborative project within and beyond academia.

The programme is for PhD researchers looking for a practical learning opportunity on how to design a collaborative research/creative residency project with a non-academic organisation by engaging with a real cultural partner, which this year will be the National Trust’s Plas Newydd House and Gardens [], which will challenge us to design research projects and creative residencies that engage with their enchanting mansion, gardens and art collections. You will work in teams (or individually) to go through all the stages of designing a project that can engage with the collections on a variety of themes around sustainable development and wellbeing. Researchers interested in delivering their designed residencies to Plas will be able to access funding from their DTPs following the Residential, (subject to eligibility).

The wellbeing programme will include an inspiring training session on ‘The Resilient PhD Researcher’ and a final walk on a breathtaking territory of the Island of Anglesey on the final day.
