ResCen has developed a series of events that addresses and explores a wide range of issues related to the creative process and practice of artists. ResCen has drawn on the expertises of its own artists, as well as invited UK and international artists to contribute to key debates. In addition, experts and practitioners in other research and professional fields including Anthropology, Geography, Learning Sciences, Psychoanalysis, Neuroscience, Archiving and Public Policy have been invited to contribute to these discussions.
A key part of ResCen’s work is to generate and analyse knowledge through reflection on process, as well as one-to-one, group discussions and presentations by ResCen artists, invited guests and audience members.
A number of events have been presented in which artists discuss and examine particular processes that form and influence their work. These include:
In addition to our extensive public conference, seminar and workshop series, ResCen has begun to develop seminars for delegates from key performing arts institutions, research centres and organisations, as well as funders and policy makers, to discuss past, current and future policy issues that affect artists’ practice.
As a research centre, ResCen holds audio-visual and textual material relating to the work of its associated artists and researchers, as well as recordings and transcriptions of all ResCen internal and external seminars and events. All of the transcripts of the public events are available in this section of the website.
