News – there will be an extra meeting on May 12th – place to be announced. Click this link to join the group.
Welcome back for the second year of CollabHub! Last year I set up a meeting just to see if anyone was interested in meeting students from different disciplines to work on new ideas together in a more multi-disciplinary setting. This resulted in new projects, sometimes where collaborations extended beyond the University. So if year 1 was all about testing the water, year 2 is going to be all about growing this community.
You’ll see lots of information on this blog about the symposium, and some of the collaborations. I’ll be posting items about new initiatives. You can also find out more current news on Facebook
Please contact me if you’d like to investigate a collaborative idea. I welcome suggestions about how and what CollabHub can do for you as that’s the main reason it exists.
Here is the schedule for the coming year
- October 14th – (time to be confirmed) Welcome back meeting – introductions and news (St Pauls, 3.15 to 5.15 at the latest)
- November 11th – (evening) Coffeevolution meet 1: Pitches, demonstrations of work, talk from http://fifthplanet.co.uk/
- December 9th – (2.15) Researcher Hub: Pitches, work in progress and talk from http://zeligsound.com/

- May 23rd – all day COLLABHUB SYMPOSIUM! Maybe you will work towards presenting something in the concert, an installation, or a talk about your collaborations this year. If you want to be on the CollabHub team please contact email@example.com (subject CollabHub TEAM). Jobs include marketing, illustration, liaison, producing materials (like the symposium booklet).
This year I’m running two initiatives. One with History & Music Technology, and another with Music, Marketing, Music Technology and Enterprise.
If you would like to be involved in a mixed-discipline collaboration like one of these, draft your ideas and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org . While I work in Music/Music Technology I am interested to help foster collaborations joining all subject areas interested (not only Humanities and Arts, but science, technology and engineering of course). Often project ideas come to me through the University, so if you want something to happen in your area, talk to your tutor and contact me. You never know!
Project 1: Sound walks project.
I’m working with the History team and Huddersfield Creative Arts Network http://www.hcan.org.uk/ on a new project that asks teams to develop sound walks about Huddersfield. This includes a guest speaker, mentoring from outside the University, and a pitch. The group with the best project will receive funding to deliver it and it will actually be used! The details of this project are currently being developed and may be subject to change. But if you’re a music technology student please contact me. History students will be contacted by their tutor.
