Evolution of Methodologies

The team have been busy again this month, developing pathways from the project for impact. Claire and Hannah were invited to share learnings and speak at the Evolution of Methodologies conference on 29th June, held at The National Glass Centre in Sunderland.

80 participants gathered to consider how artists and designers are evolving practice based research at the conference funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council  and organised by the Northumbria- Sunderland Centre for Doctoral Training in Art and Design.

Together, we critically interrogated practice-led research methodologies across creative disciplines. We discussed the Participatory Action Research methodology and design thinking practices which have informed the work to date. The slides of our presentation can be viewed here:

And the whole session can be watched on demand here (we start at 1:06:35):

Q&A session with the participants

The presentation generated a lot of discussion in the Q&A session, and the team has since been invited to contribute a chapter to a new book to be published by Routledge: ‘Transcending Disciplinarity; Reconnecting Philosophies of Research Design and Methodology in Art and Science’.
