Creative Facilitation Unit

Essentially experimental, creative facilitation brings diverse groups of people together to collaborate, take risks and form meaningful connections.

Durham is known internationally for pioneering creative facilitation in interdisciplinary and cross-sector research.

The Creative Facilitation Unit in the Discovery Research Platform for Medical Humanities is led by Mary Robson with Bentley Crudgington. Together they will facilitate Platform activities and equip individuals with skills in creative facilitation through training programmes and mentorship. 

You can find out more about creative facilitation by reading the report 'Creative Facilitation: Transforming Understandings and approaches to interdisciplinary and cross-sector research' or applying to join one of our training programmes.
