|Public events and research partnerships
Since 1999 ResCen has established a series of public events which include major, national and international conferences and research symposia. Themes and concerns that have emerged through discussion about the creative process include: intuition, the role of play, the artist as catalyst, motivation, making space. Leading academics and specialists in other fields such as Learning Sciences (Prof. Guy Claxton), Psychoanalysis (Dr. Hanna Segal), Anthropology (Prof. Tim Ingold), Geography (Prof. Doreen Massey), and Neuroscience (Dr. Daniel Glaser) have contributed to these, and other debates.
Events have taken place at Middlesex University’s Trent Park Campus, the Jerwood Space, South Bank Centre, Greenwich Dance Agency, the Globe Theatre, Chisenhale Dance Space, the Theatre Museum, Conway Hall and Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
ResCen has contributed to a number of national and international conferences including: PSI#11, Brown University, Rhode Island, USA; ESRC Conference on Creativity, Canterbury Christ Church University; Close Encounters Conference at Danshögskolan, Sweden and PARIP (Practice as Research in Performance), University of Bristol.
