The Maya Project translates research scholarship into public engagement and international impact. The Maya Project is a platform for interdisciplinary action-research which itself leads to further enterprise activities, especially social and cultural enterprise at international level. The hub for publications and media outcomes is the website of the project ( Through this website we disseminate the results of our research via artwork and responsive public engagement. The website also acts as a repository of the most relevant publications about the Maya, making it one of the major online resources for research and scholarship.

So far, we have presented 5 multimedia exhibitions with accompanying conferences and symposia, between October 2012 and the present day, in 4 countries. These exhibitions are carefully designed for multilevel accessibility, from primary school children to, to political and social leaders, to specialized researchers and scholars.
