About us

Brigstow brings researchers from different disciplines together with a range of partners across the city and beyond to experiment in new ways of living and being. Watch the video below to get an idea of the types of projects we fund.


Find out more about the people involved with Brigstow. 

Our initial themes focus on:

  • living well with technologies
  • living well with difference
  • living well with uncertainty
  • just plain old living well

Our research is underpinned by a commitment to a distinctive way of working that focuses on inter-disciplinarity, co-produced research with – and not just for – external partners, and an emphasis on ‘critical making’ as a research methodology.

Sign up to our mailing list if you would like to be one of the first to hear about our events and funding opportunities.
