Dear ECA Art & Design PhD researcher,
We are a research group in Design School called LINES https://sites.eca.ed.ac.uk/lines/about/
The lines group has a broad interest in narrative and storytelling which incorporates process, practise and structure. We are interested in how and why we tell stories in and through visual and material culture. We are developing a multi-disciplinary approach to research with outputs in talks, workshops, collaborative research and eventually new courses.
As part of this process we are also looking to develop the best way to grow interest in the group and disseminate ideas springing from it. With that in mind we are having an evening of informal research presentations from Lines group members and PhD students in The Wee Red Bar on Wednesday Oct 12 at 1.30-5pm.
We would love you to take part. We intend the presentations to be short 6 minute talks and to be driven by a line of 3 words from the word-grid above (2 minutes per word).
In discussion afterwards there will be a Graphic Elicitor who will capture ideas and concepts in a visual way useful for further discussion and dissemination.
This will be our first event of this kind - so it is an experiment, hopefully we will learn what works best. We are interested in your research and how it may intersect with the themes of the group.
Sign up now!
Thank you, and hope you can help us make this a success.
