The Centre for Practice Based Research in the Arts is pleased to invite colleagues to a half-day symposium titled: Practices and Processes of Practice-Research: Interdisciplinary and Methodological Critique on 1st June 2016 from 1-6pm.

This will be an interdisciplinary event focused on the issue of developing Practice Research methodologies. Position papers will be delivered by distinguished speakers Professor Paul Whitty (Music, Oxford Brookes University), Dr Rachel Hann (Theatre, University of Surrey) and Professor Erik Knudsen (Visual and Digital Culture, Bournemouth University).

The panel represents practitioners with experience of large-scale funded practice research projects, the REF2014 panels for practice submissions and the publication and peer review of practice research. Responses to these papers will be delivered by members of the Centre, and the day will conclude with a round table involving the speakers and representatives of public-facing organisations such as the Sidney Cooper Gallery in Canterbury.

The event will take place on the North Holmes Road campus.

It is free to attend for all members of the Centre for Practice Based Research in the Arts and costs £10 for external guests.
