Capturing Creativity, 2023 was an online conference hosted by Bath Spa University and Loughborough University on Monday 18th September 2023.

The conference was aimed at repository support librarians and research support staff responsible for showcasing creative practice research via institutional repositories and submission of this research to the REF.  Research leads and creative research practitioners will also be interested in presentations which covered subjects including an explanation and justification of the need to write research contextual information to support an artwork or creative practice project, and an analysis by two REF 2021 panel members on what constituted a 'good' creative practice REF submission.
