Nazneen and David will be talking about their AHRC research that explored suburban faith communities' everyday creative practices

Dr Nazneen Ahmed (independent researcher) and Professor David Gilbert (Geography, Royal Holloway)

In their seminar 'Locating Creativity in Cultural Cities', Nazneen and David will give an overview on the four years of research they conducted with Professor Claire Dwyer, Laura Cuch and Dr Natalie Hyacinth for the AHRC Connected Communities project "Making Suburban Faith: Design, Material Culture and Popular Creativity" between 2015 - 2019. The UCL-Royal Holloway geography project worked with a range of faith communities in a diverse suburban borough of London in order to investigate forms of creative making and design among faith communities, using creative methods and co-production as ways to explore creative practices connected to faith traditions and places of worship. Connecting the project's findings to local conversations taking place in Southampton, Nazneen will reflect on the ways the project used creative methods to map spaces of everyday creativity beyond the museum and the gallery.
