About us

Science, Humanities and Arts Research Exchange

SHARE (Science, Humanities and Arts Research Exchange) facilitates interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers and artists at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the University of St Andrews, and beyond.

We seek to identify staff and students at each institution who are interested in interdisciplinary collaborations; to make introductions between RCS, St Andrews, and Scotland-based researchers and artists with overlapping interests; to support the development of any collaborative interdisciplinary projects that should arise; and to act as a hub for sharing the development and outcomes of these projects.

We have several interdisciplinary PhD students co-supervised by RCS and St Andrews academic staff (including one funded by a St Leonard’s Interdisciplinary grant and one funded by a SGSAH CDA grant), and are working towards building our interdisciplinary cohort.

We regularly host collaborative concerts and performances, speaker series, and discussion groups, and a semi-annual Interdisciplinary Mini-Symposium, as well as a wide variety of one-off events. Upcoming plans include our second Interdisciplinary Mini-Symposium, which will be broadly focused  on "creative health", in spring 2023, and our First Interdisciplinary Residency at Upper Woodburn, to be held in November 2022.
