CEPRAH (community engagement praxis for research in the arts and humanities) is a project led by the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute, Trinity College Dublin and AONTAS, Ireland's National Adult Learning Organisation. The project is funded by an Irish Research Council New Foundations Grant (Strand 1a) and will run until December 2021.

CEPRAH aims to identify methods and pathways to improve collaboration between the Arts and Humanities and Civic Society and Community Organisations. More information about the project can be found here.

This survey is part of the scoping exercise. The results of the survey will be anonymised with any personal identifiers removed. Responses will be used to inform the following aspects of the CEPRAH project portfolio: 
  • An overview of practices for collaboration
  • A bibliography of relevant literature
CEPRAH would welcome your participation regardless of previous experience of engagement. The survey takes on average 10-15 minutes to complete. The survey is aimed at:
  1. Arts and Humanities researchers with experience of working in HEIs
  2. All practitioners working in civic and community groups
For the purposes of this survey, the Arts and Humanities encompass the disciplines of the Trinity Long Room Hub’s partnering schools: Archaeology, Architecture, Art History, Classics, Communication Studies, Cultural Studies, Drama, Ecumenics, Education, English, Film, Gender Studies, History, Journalism, Languages, Law, Linguistics, Literature, Media Studies, Music, Philosophy, Religion and Theology.
