CoCreate investigates societal challenges and cultural experiences through participatory and design-led research, emphasising the intersections of digital interaction, social design and creative practice.  

Group members engage across the themes and initiatives outlined below and, as with the BxNU Institute, build capacity for cross-disciplinary research throughout the University.  

Regular CoCreate activities include co-hosting a fortnightly digital design research series with internal and external speakers; regular craft futures forums exploring aspects of emerging making cultures and practice-led design research; and annual public-facing ‘digital disruption’ events to demonstrate on-going projects and build University-Industrial-Public sector collaborations in emerging technologies.
