STICKY THICK, the annual practice as research forum hosted by the School of Music and Fine Art, University of Kent, and the Sound-Image-Space Research Centre (SISRC), takes place on Wednesday 7th June 2017, 11am-5pm, in the Galvanising Shop Performance Space, Historic Dockyard Chatham.
The event brings together artists, writers, filmmakers, philosophers, composers, performers and researchers across disciplines to investigate practice as research as a continuing process of invention, and explores its capacity to generate dynamic and challenging modes of enquiry. Now in its 3rd year this annual event forms a key part of the research culture and programme at SMFA, providing a platform for academics and research students to present and discuss their research with colleagues across the University and CHASE consortium, and with invited speakers who include Jaime Del Val, transdisciplinary media artist, philosopher, activist, Director of the Metabody Institute: metabody.eu; artists and filmmakers Ruth MacLennan, Sarah Turner, Shona Illingworth, Tim Meacham and Luciano Zubillaga; electroacoustic composer Aki Pasoulas; environmental scientist Joseph Tzanopoulos and Yvonne Salmon, Chair of the Cambridge University Counterculture Research Group and writer on law, literature and visual culture, this one day event opens up a dynamic space for discussion, debate and exchange.
All welcome! Please RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or turn up on the day.
