“This exhibition is designed to stimulate dialogue in the contemporary arts, reflecting the cultural diversity of our society, but also exploring issues of fragmentation and dissonance.

We are looking for artists to present fresh ideas and approaches that challenge our understanding of who we are and what we believe.”

The deadline is 15 July.

Discrimination – religion & belief

Contentious area – and a new study to tease out what’s going on.

The project seeks to inform public debate in this contentious area and equip users of research in public, private and voluntary and community sector organisations (including among policy makers, and in religion and belief groups) to make a difference by developing understanding, policy and practice in a more evidence-based way.

The University of Derby is looking for people to work on the study – details on their jobs website (deadline 9th October).
