Abstract

SMASHfestUK was founded in 2015 by Lindsay Keith, Creative Research Fellow at University of Greenwich, and Wyn Griffiths, Senior Lecturer at Middlesex University. SMASHfestUK is a science and arts festival for young people and families which was founded and designed specifically to engage underserved and under-represented audiences. The founders created partnerships and developed networks with organisations and schools working in representative communities, STEM and Arts academia and industry to develop and implement co-design approaches that would help engage underserved communities with STEM and the Arts, change institutional practices, and challenge visible and invisible barriers to engagement. Through participatory action research and design processes, the project aimed to create an inclusive framework for accessibility to STEM and Arts careers, and practice by women, working class and ethnic minority groups.
