About

Creativity and Innovation in a World of Movement CIM:Resource

This site is part of the project Creativity and Innovation in a World of Movement (CIM), and is dedicated to an ongoing knowledge exchange with our academic peers, students, artists, museum curators and the wider arts community. It’s essentially our way of reaching out to all those concerned with issues around creativity and innovation across a variety of global contexts.

We’ve set out to generate some digital resources compiled by authors from across the consortium, with additional contributions from associated partners.

CIM:Resource raises questions that include:

  • Why do people create and engage with things?
  • What do specific material objects mean to different individuals in distinct socio-historical contexts?
  • What happens to artefacts when taken from one place to another in terms of their meaning, value and impact?

Our overall concern is with various dimensions of contemporary material culture and how to trace the circulation of specific imagery in contexts of global connectedness, or following artefacts as they move across time and space.

We hope you enjoy this site and feed back to us on the material as it grows.

You can read more about CIM at the project website or download our poster for an at-a-glance overview.

Our project is financially supported by the HERA Joint Research Programme which is co-funded by AHRC, AKA, DASTI, ETF, FNR, FWF, HAZU, IRCHSS, MHEST, NWO, RANNIS, RCN, VR and The European Community FP7 2007-2013, under the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities programme.
