Join Us and be Inspired!
The College Artist in Residence programme has illuminated many exciting possibilities for more actively engaging new methodologies, pedagogies, partnerships and forms of public engagement in ways that have great potential to increase the value and impact of our research and teaching.
This workshop will provide a unique opportunity for College staff and graduate students to explore the potential of art, art practices and artists to change the way we work, be inspired to incorporate some of these practices, and have a chance to begin networking with other interested colleagues within the university.
We are delighted to welcome Stephanie Springgay, (Associate Professor, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto) to lead these explorations. Arising in the intersections of art, research and education, her work centres on innovations in pedagogy, curriculum and social theory which are informed by her scholarship on research-creation and new philosophies of qualitative methodology, alongside her work as an artist and coordinator of several artist residency programmes (see www.thepedagogicalimpulse.com).
Stephanie will introduce us to the field of research-creation through examples of her own work and an overview of the Canadian landscape in which this work as evolved and grown. Participants will then be invited to join in a Sonic Walk, which formed part of this year’s Tunnelling Art and Science Module, a collaboration between UCD and NCAD students. This module, co-developed by Professor of Astronomy Lorraine Hanlon and artist Emer O’Boyle, became the basis for what is now UCD Parity Studios and the university–wide Artist in Residence programme.
The afternoon session will focus on the nuts-and-bolts practical issues relating to developing projects and programmes of this nature. This will include such areas as funding and developing effective funding proposals, partnerships, collaborations. Here Stephanie will draw on her notable experience and success with the Canadian Research Council, both in terms of her funding success as well as her involvement in shaping the nationally funded research programme in this area.
An open discussion of the ways College staff can engage with the Artist in Residence programme toward the realization of the possibilities discussed over the course of the day will close the event.
