ESRC Impact Award 2014 16/06/2014

RSRA Principal Investigator, Lorna Warren, was delighed to receive second prize in the Economic and Social Research Council's Impact Awards earlier this month. The winners were announced during a ceremony at The Royal Society, London, on 5 June 2014. Lorna achieved second prize in the category for Outstanding Impact in Society. This is important recognition indeed of the impact the Look at Me! project has had on participants and society more generally. This work continues, as Lorna exlained: "Through this combination of participatory arts projects, intergenerational learning on age awareness and a challenging charter, we have begun a crucial three-pronged attack to shift stereotyped and negative perceptions which we know shape the social value, opportunities and resources assigned to women as they age". Big congratulations to the whole RSRA team! Read more here: http://www.esrc.ac.uk/news-and-events/events/celebrating-impact-prize/prize-winners-2014.aspx
