Hundreds of people from across the University of Leeds, Opera North and beyond are engaged in DARE.

There isn’t an approvals process. If those involved agree an idea has the potential to be mutually beneficial in the areas of research, skills development and public engagement, that’s all that’s needed.

The DARE partnership team

The partnership team includes representatives from the University’s Cultural Institute and from Opera North Higher Education.  Our role is to support colleagues from across our organisations, who share the DARE vision, to develop collaborative activity.  And to connect DARE with external bodies with the potential to help achieve our ambitions.

We would like to share what you’re doing on the website, so do let us know about it.

And please get in touch if you would like help to get your ideas off the ground.
