University of Sussex – 16 March 2016
The Creativity Zone, Pevensey III
Organised by Emile Devereaux with Sally Jane Norman
Small groups of PhD researchers are invited for one day of hands’ on practical sessions, to collaboratively develop and present projects to the cohort within a limited timeframe. Doctoral researchers are encouraged to consider collaborative, practical and visual approaches to their research, practitioners will be able to extend their methods in new directions. The ability to engage with practical methods and communicate effectively through media forms requires more than an afterthought or illustration of theory. We seek to develop the potential for performativity and media to reach audiences beyond academic contexts and hope that this one-day immersive collaborative experimentation might lead to future exhibition, curating and dissemination of works.
This all day event, led by Sussex academic practitioners and theorists engaged in a range of creative media practices, builds on previous Sussex CHASE activities, research at the Centre for Material Digital Culture and on CCPRG initiatives.
This is a day for you to work in small groups with techniques including performative actions, video, sound, physical computing and coding techniques to realise a collaborative project. The early part of the day is devoted to getting to know your fellow group participants and to solidify your work plan for the afternoon. Registration and coffee start at 9:30am with the first introductory session at 10am. In the afternoon, participants grouped in parallel workshop sessions will explore a number of hands’ on techniques. The day will wrap up around 5:30pm with an informal exhibition and presentation of the works, followed by a meal in Brighton (tbc).
Space is limited.
During registration, please indicate your first, second, and third choices for the practical groups.
