CALL FOR PAPERS

Determining Creative Practice

A practice-based research symposium
Wednesday December 2nd 2009
1030-530
University of Bedfordshire, UK

FREE EVENT

The University of Bedfordshire, University of Derby & the Practice Section of MeCCSA 
present a one day practice-based symposium for media practitioners and academics.

The contribution of practice-based research within arts and humanities has become 
increasingly recognized and indeed inter-disciplinary collaborations are creating 
recognition outside of the field. A key criteria of practice-based research is the role of 
critical writing and reflection. The process relies on forming explicit relations between 
practice and outcome and reflexively exploring the role of the researcher in producing the 
creative output. Theoretical paradigms for the latter are many and varied. Indeed it is 
possible to ‘justify’ any form of practice as research through sufficient theoretical cause. 
The creative process however is often organic, multi-valent and can be driven by 
unknown causes, disparate events or what appears as irrelevant information. Some 
creative practitioners would claim this drive is ‘something’ beyond them. Others may 
argue this is simply the nature of the creative process.  
 
In the context of writing, reflecting and presenting practice-based research what role do 
notions of determinism play? Are the requirements of practice-based research over-
determined? Is there space to consider the concept of pre determination within creative 
practice?  

We welcome presentations of all forms of creative work, including films, creative writing, 
performance, sound and new media that address the following themes:

Is the core origin of creativity within the individual, society, or something else? 
Is the conscious processing of creating work just one part of the creative story?   
If proposals ‘determine’ how useful are they in a process of creative discovery? What 
alternative models exist?
If media practice is predetermined, what does this say about the product, the practice, 
and the practitioner? How does this relate to originality, creativity, and progress?
What is the role of collaboration in questioning the self-determination of the artist, or the 
work of art?
What role does commissioning and pre-production play in determining a creative 
practice?
To what extent do the institutional and commercial bodies that enable and fund practice-
based research encourage the production of paratexts which predetermine the nature and 
scope of the practice and the context within which that practice can be 'read'?

Creative presentations of 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of theoretical interpretation 
/ reflection are encouraged. 

The event is free and includes lunch and refreshments.  

Please e-mail proposals of 300 words to both organisers by 21 October 2009.
