Encounters: Creative Practice as Research Method with Carolin Meyer and Amit Chaudhuri

The Encounters programme aims to unpack creativity and the creative method, and to explore how creative practice operates as a form of knowing, exploring or discovering as well as doing, seeking to recognise the value of creative practice as knowledge creation and knowledge disruption. 

  • What is the value of creative practices as forms of knowing, exploring or discovering, and how do these forms relate to more conventional modes of research?
  • How might creative or artistic practices be used to transform or amplify more conventional modes of research in the humanities?
  • How can academic research learn to speak more clearly to the needs of creative practitioners and to the Creative and Cultural Industries?
  • How can creative practice map the future?  How can it help map the future of research both at UCL and more widely?

The programme is broadly focused on the fields of performance, creative writing, visual arts or media.
