“Works In Progress”: Creative Dialogues on Research and Practice

Works In Progress”: Creative Dialogues on Research and Practice
Ayr Campus: 27th February 2014,  Room GT 27, 1pm – 3pm 

You are invited to participate in the first of an ongoing programme of informal talks and discussions relating to the research output of research students in the School of Creative and Cultural Industries. Each month will feature talks / presentations by research students in the school, focusing on elements of their research output and / or creative practice, with a view towards engaging in productive dialogue about research and practice in an informal and nurturing environment. It is our aim to help establish a stronger sense of research community within the School of Creative and Cultural Industries, to the mutual benefit of all PhD students, and believe that familiarity and engagement with each others' work is an important step in establishing this. 

This initial session will feature presentations by Iain Taylor and Alison Bell: 

Iain Taylor is a research student and Associate Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Commercial Music programme. His research is investigating the ways that we attach value to music in an increasingly digital and intangible environment of production and consumption. 

Alison Bell is a research student and Associate Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Digital Art programme. Her research is investigating the subjective experience of ageing as embodied through creative practice.

Sessions will be held on the last Thursday of every month on the Ayr Campus. Tea and coffee will be provided. If you are interested in presenting at a forthcoming session, please contact Iain Taylor or Alison Bell to register your interest: 

We hope to see you there, and look forward to hearing about your work!
