2024 and beyond

MAP’s current funding comes to an end in July 2024. We are currently exploring how we can next imagine, use and apply 4 years of research, evidence and arts based approaches. In this regard we are scoping opportunities to transform into a research and educational social enterprise/entity. To do this we are:

  • Conducting informal ‘Possible Futures Conversations’ with academics, enterprise/ innovation enthusiasts, and youth and arts focused experts to listen and learn about your experiences, and perspectives on our value propositions.
  • Creating open space sessions with partners involved in MAP to get their suggestions and perspectives
  • Engaging with the SHAPE Pre-Accelerator. This is an online programme supporting researchers from the Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts to explore routes to generate sustainable impact at scale.
