Transforming Creativity’s open programme of creative research / practice workshops was kicked off in fine, generative style at Winchester School of Art by Andy Lapham. An initially apprehensive-looking group of staff and postgraduate researchers from across the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and Web Science were soon tweaking RGB values and alpha channels and sending lines, circles and sine waves bouncing all round their laptop screens.
The Transforming Creativity Research Group is initiating an open-ended series of creative research / practice workshops for group members and others, workshops that will place creative practice itself centre stage as a research methodology. The aim is for researchers to explore alternative modes of knowledge generation and dissemination to the scholarly article and presentation, and for creative practitioners to explore how their practice can address and answer research questions. Future workshops will include zine production, audiovisual presentation, cross-media publishing, microethnography, and risograph printing.
We are kicking off with Creative Coding: Adventures in Generative Design on Wednesday 26thJune, 1pm to 4pm. This introductory session will be run by Andy Lapham and requires no previous experience of coding.
