This practice article reports on our experiences of a collaborative exhibition (from planning to delivery) at the Research Showcase event held in Cardiff in June 2014. The event was part of the larger Connected Communities Programme established by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council. One of the aims of the program is to get community partners more involved in the entirety of the research process, from setting research priorities to disseminating research findings. This article has been written primarily by university-based authors with contributions and critical reflections from some of our collaborative partners.We draw the conclusion that, even in the not often discussed nitty-gritty of collaborative exhibiting and research dissemination, significant skills and qualities are required. These include trust, transparency, flexibility and compromise.
