The Art of Research: Research Narratives

Chelsea College of Art and Design, London
28 October 2008 00:00 - 30 October 2008 00:00

Research Narratives focuses on debates around practice-led research by considering how practice is discussed, described or addressed within a research context.
The symposium invites participants to exhibit their research. The aim of this symposium is to foreground practical research and map and reflect on ways in which researchers formulate their work in the fields of art and design. Research Narratives is an open call for practical work rather than papers, looking at examples of research to generate, re-focus and re-direct its discussion.
 Research Narratives is an international symposium aimed at doctoral, post-doctoral researchers and experienced practitioners and researchers. Participants are asked to submit a proposal to exhibit work considered as research. The proposal should include documentation of the practical element of your research alongside information such as: size, medium and any requirements you have for exhibition. For performances or time-based works, please include the duration of your work.
 The submission should include a 100-300 word description of how you intend to address your work as research and three keys words describing your research interests. There are no costs available to transport work to London, so please propose work available to be posted or delivered to the site in person.
 If you submit work to this symposium, you will be expected to attend.
 Call for proposals: 7 May
 Proposal submission deadline: 27 June 
The provisional symposium fee is £150 (with a reduction for students). Delegates will be expected to pay for their own accommodation and transport.
This symposium is organised by Chelsea College of Art and Design with support from Camberwell College of Arts and Wimbledon College of Art. It follows the seminar The Art of Research: Connections between Research and Art/Design Practices held by the School of Design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki in 2007.
