Welcome to the Talking Heads project blog

Talking Heads is a project, funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), which aims to bring together insights drawn from deliberative democracy and the performing arts to tackle the stereotyping and marginalisation of young Muslims.

The project a team is drawn from across the higher education, cultural and voluntary sectors. Led by Dr Rod Dacombe, of the Department of Political Economy at King’s College, London, it also includes Dr Louise Brown (University of Bath), Michelle Lawrence (LinkUp UK) and Katy Vanden (Cap-a-Pie).

On this blog we will provide information on the project and regular updates on our progress.  We will also discuss the ideas underpinning the work, and talk about the ways in which universities can contribute towards socially-innovative solutions to social problems.
