Issues in Creative Practice Research

The Issues in Creative Practice Research working group is a forum that addresses questions around creative practice research.

The Issues in Creative Practice Research working group addresses the unique questions that arise in the course of conducting creative practice research. Bringing together staff and students from around the university to discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by practice-based, practice-led, and practice-as-research, this forum welcomes a diversity of perspectives on research, practice, and how the two can work together.

The group maintains a cross disciplinary reading list relevant to the field.  

Please contact if you'd like to join. 

Creative Conservations

The working group holds a Creative Conversations series of informal sessions across the university for colleagues (academic staff and PhD students) across disciplines whose research engages with, and/or produces, creative outputs.

Each session is themed and includes a short provocation from a practitioner or academic engaged in creative practice as research with alternate reading group sessions.

The upcoming Creative Conversations are:

  • 12 March 2020, 1-2pm: Richard White and Dr Thomas Kampe on research creation. Locksbrook Campus (Room 201).
  • 23 April 2020, 1-2pm: Dr Penny Hay and Dr Helena Enright on creative pedagogy. Locksbrook Campus (Room 207).

Everyone welcome. No need to book.
