We are writing to let you know that registration is now open for NW/THN: Documenting, Publishing, Disseminating Objects & Experiences<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/mediamorphosis/2013/05/05/nwthn-symposium-workshops-registration-open/>, a free-to-attend, one-day workshop-symposium taking place on June 24 at the University of Sussex. NW/THN invites practice-based/led research students, faculty, working practitioners and professional creative organisations to discuss, exchange and engage with documenting, publishing, disseminating objects and experiences.
Keynote speakers: Frédéric Bevilacqua (Head of the Real Time Musical Interactions team at IRCAM) <http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/mediamorphosis/2013/05/05/frederic-bevilacqua_gesture-and-sound-interactions-research-and-applications_/> & Semiconductor (artists)<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/mediamorphosis/2013/05/05/semiconductor_brilliant-noise_/>
NW/THN's collaborative principle is reflected in the involvement of the Creative Critical Practice Research Group<http://ccrpgsussex.wordpress.com/> (CCPRG), the Documenting, Publishing and Disseminating platform REFRAME<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/> and faculty and doctoral students from the University of Sussex, Royal College of Art, University of Brighton and University of West London.
Participants include (in alphabetical order): Tom Ainsworth (University of Brighton), Cécile Chevalier (University of Sussex), Dr Kieran Fenby-Hulse (University of Brighton), Dr Catherine Grant (REFRAME<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/>), Ian Grant (University of West London), Justin Grize (University of Sussex), Nanette Hoogslag (Royal College of Art), Paul McConnell (University of Sussex), Micheál O’Connell AKA Mocksim (University of Sussex), Russell Pearce (University of Sussex), Rachel Tavernor (University of Sussex), and Kirk Woolford (University of Sussex).
As processes and materials generated by practice-based/led research cannot always be directly published in the way traditional Arts and Humanities scholarship has been, CCPRG identified the need for a one-day symposium, set in an interactive and creative environment, which will offer training and critical insight on how practice can be represented in DPD.
Considering both digital and pre-digital modes of dissemination, NW/THN will look to interrogate two key questions: what do we lose or gain when we document and publish digitally? Are modes of DPD determined by target audiences or/and nature of output? Because these questions have a resonance outside of academia, we propose a collaborative, multi and crossdisciplinary discussion about applied approaches.
NW/THN: Documenting, Publishing, Disseminating Objects & Experiences symposium is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and supported by the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, University of Sussex<http://www.sussex.ac.uk/acca/>.
