creative image: WAYS OF SEEING, REPRESENTING AND RESHAPING REALITY
1ST INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY CONFERENCE, manchester, 21-27 September 2018.
The aim of this AHRC-funded event is to channel and showcase new perspectives and approaches that visual practitioners, practice researchers and visual ethnographers are currently employing in their work. In order to enrich visual practices toward new disciplinary horizons, we therefore advocate for a visual, sonic, experimental, and more widely multisensory cross-disciplinary knowledge.
The VRN Residency Conference aims to bring together visual researchers and practitioners, especially PhD students, who are actively working with visual methods in their own fieldwork or their practice-as-research. It welcomes participants from a variety of disciplines, including, visual anthropology, filmmaking, music, fine arts, performance arts, animation, and photography.
The event is composed of a five-day residency open to 12 participants, a one day conference including participants of the residency and external presenters, and a transitional day where researchers will be able to share their practice and network with each other before the conference.
