We will explore creativity within research and identify opportunities to use artistic methods within the research process. Participants will actively work with creative research methods and the research-based art project construction process. We will explain what creativity is, why we should investigate during the performance of our artistic work, why we should be creative in our research, and how we can introduce research into our artistic practice and methods.
Sunday, October 25 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
