Collaborate pilot project
In 2021 we have been running a pilot project to fully test the aims and processes of our Collaborate fund.
The pilot project is a research partnership between Manchester Camerata and Dr Michelle Phillips, a senior lecturer at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Working together, they are exploring how listeners respond neurologically, behaviourally and physiologically to different music listening experiences. The project will also investigate whether responses differ between live and recorded performances, an increasing area of interest since the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our Collaborate fund supports innovative new research partnerships between cultural sector practitioners and academics. There will be two rounds of funding – one in autumn 2021 and one in autumn 2022.
This page will highlight the projects that are awarded funding though Collaborate. We will also share insights and learning that emerge from the research collaborations.
