Hosted by the School of Music and Fine Art, University of Kent, and the Sound-Image-Space Research Centre (SISRC), this one day symposium will bring together artists, writers, filmmakers, composers, actors and researchers across disciplines to investigate practice research as a continuing process of invention, and its capacity to generate dynamic and challenging modes of enquiry.
The event will include presentations by Shona Illingworth, Adam Chodzko, Sarah Turner, Gretchen Egolf and Sinéad Rushe, Tim Meacham, Steve Klee, Duncan Macleod, Jan Hendrickse, Amber Priestley and others.
The symposium will begin from 11:00-11:45, meeting for coffee in the Horsebridge Arts Centre to listen to readings from Rebecca Solnit’s The Faraway Nearby. Symposium presentations begin in the United Reform Church Hall from 12:00, with breaks at intervals to view Biennale exhibits. The symposium closes with drinks on the beach at 19:00 before the world premiere of Nichola Bruce’s new film Gifts.
