Discussion/workshop: Creative research projects:  how is this possible?

Ian Marley and Franci Greyling, leaders and curators of the Transgressions / Einders project, discuss the challenges and possibilities of practice based research. Aspects like creative group dynamics, project structure, and project management will be discussed and practical tips will be shared.

It is hoped that this project will stimulate broader discussion of practice as research and that approaches such as this one will fuel further projects that can open up avenues within which an expanded view of art making and academic work can develop. The advantages of practice-based research are numerous, both for practising artists and the more academically inclined, and include a broad networking base of like-minded creatives and thinkers who gain much from large collaborative efforts that also demand the development of insight into the intimate workings of the individual creative mind.
