Workshop: Translating Research into Arts: Method & Practice - 31 October 2019

Please note that this event has passed.


This practical workshop aims to unpack what it means to translate research into art, inviting you to experiment with your own practices. Social science researchers will guide you through the process of how they approach research through arts- based mediums (photography, zine-making, sketches) 

The workshop aims to give you a palette of approaches to apply to your own research, considering the ethical implications of the relationship between researchers and their subjects/objects of study.

Please come prepared to share your work and experiment with new methods.

Questions to consider prior to the workshop might be:

  • Why have I chosen this medium to represent my research?
  • What is the meaning I am trying to capture through my medium?
  • Whose story am I telling?
  • What lens am I looking through?
  • What are the ethics of distribution and representation when showing work as part of an exhibition?
