Doing Together 2023

Doing Together: Creative Practice Research Symposium 2023 was a two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. 

Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, shared practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. 

Doing Together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - tested out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.

Doing Together 2023 was concluded with a plenary session delivered by Dr Emma Cocker (Associate Professor, Nottingham School of Art & Design) who shared her thoughts & findings from the symposium.
