Presenting writer: Nina Wakeford (Visual Sociology & Art, RCA/Goldsmiths)
Respondent: Karl Baker (Writer & philosopher, UAL)
***Please note, this was previously scheduled to take place on the 18th July ***
The Writing for Practice Forum is based in the Mountain of Art Research (MARs) at Goldsmiths College, and is organised by artists and researchers Kate Pickering and Rowena Harris. The forum is a peer led discursive space to gain valuable feedback on imaginative or experimental approaches with text-based material. It is open to all researchers within Goldsmiths, other CHASE institutions and beyond as either presenting writers or discussion participants and requires no prior knowledge or preparation, other than an interest in developing a deeper understanding of writing as part of practice based research.
Prior to each forum, the presenting writer chooses an excerpt of their own writing, alongside another short text by a related author as a frame of reference for the discussion. The researcher has the opportunity to invite a guest respondent to participate in the forum. Texts are available online beforehand, but pre-reading is not mandatory; we read the texts aloud at the beginning of the discussion. Researchers can attend as many or as few of the forums as their commitments allow, but are required to sign up for the session in advance.
