Place and Practice


Friday 28th June 2013

Culture Lab Space 4/5 12.30-5pm


The Cultural Significance of Place Research Group is delighted to welcome the following for the third in a series of free, half-day events held at Newcastle University:


Dr Harriet Hawkins: ‘“Nuggets”, “Packets”, “Textures” and “Assemblages”: Exploring Creative-Practice-Based Methods for Researching Place’

(Department of Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London)


Annie O’Donnell: ‘Teesside Rococo: Sculpting the Hyperlocal’

(School of Fine Art)


Michael Richardson: ‘To Name or Not to Name: A Performative Response to Caitriona Ni Laoire’

(School of Geography, Politics and Sociology)


Dr. Julie Crawshaw: ‘The Way Art Works: Descriptions of Practice’

(School of Arts and Cultures)


Ruth Barker:Notes on A Love Song’

(School of Fine Art)


Dr. Bennett Hogg: ‘Testing the Water: Improvising with the Physical Affordances of Place

(The International Centre for Music Studies)



Bringing together researchers from diverse subject areas this event will consider the use of practice-based research methods, both as a basis for ‘knowing’ or ‘querying’ various places and spaces, and as a form of research ‘output’. Through discussion, we hope to consider the value and challenges posed by such ways of working, to share insights and approaches, explore and address new questions and find new synergies, points of contact and collaborations. We warmly invite you to join us!


No need to book – all are very welcome


Please join us for coffee and cake at 12.30 and a wine reception from 4.30
