We would like to invite researchers with a research interest in money and finance to take part in our project, which is supported through the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute’s Sadler Series.

The project website is at https://culturallifeofmoney.leeds.ac.uk/. We are aiming to explore the ways in which the arts and humanities can help shape and inform debate on money and finance in the twenty-first century, through a series of online activities, including workshops, a Creative Lab with the arts studio Invisible Flock, and a series of conversations with researchers and practitioners from a range of disciplines. These conversations form the basis of a podcast series, which is available on Spotify and other platforms. We are also working with Special Collections in the Brotherton Library at the University of Leeds, to explore how their coins collection might help inform research on finance.

If you’d like to be involved in the project, and to be kept informed of events and developments, please email Matthew Treherne (m.treherne@leeds.ac.uk). You can also follow the project on Twitter @CulturalMoney.

We’re grateful to the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute for its funding for the project, and to the Cultural Institute for its support via the Leeds Creative Labs scheme.
