Description

Critical/Fictional Investigations: Site, Sound and Listening brings a panel of international, interdisciplinary artist scholars together to share research on the politics and poetics of place.



This day-long event will feature a series of presentations and readings from leading artist researchers who share concerns for how writing, sound and listening can contribute to the communicability of place and its affects. Split into two halves, the afternoon will enable writing methodologies to be shared and there will be time for extended informal discussions as well as a round of sandwiches.



Invited speakers/artists include:



Prof Lytle Shaw

Dr Rebecca Collins

Dr Natalie Ferris

Dr Jane McKie

Dr Alexander Campbell

Yulia Kovanova

Louisa Love

Matthew Zurowski



This event is open to artists and researchers who are motivated by the emergence of creative approaches to think through the complexity of our contemporary political condition.

There is a limited capacity of 30 places for this event. The event forms part of the Festival of Creative Learning and is free of charge. Lunch will be provided.
