This seminar is aimed at artists embarking upon a new project who wish to underpin their practice with solid research or those wanting to deepen their skills regarding research in creative contexts. Good research skills allow the artist to fully explore new concepts and ideas and to frame and critically evaluate their practice.
Using a workshop environment, the seminar will explore the research needs of artists enabling them to bring new perspectives to their work. The seminar will conclude with an exploration of innovative forms of dissemination that think outside the conventional gallery framework.
