Correlating Theory and Practice in Fine Art Research
Fine Art Research Network Symposium
Friday, 27 March 2015 (All day)
Event Contact Name:
"Correlating Theory and Practice in Fine Art Research" is a symposium and forum supported by students and supervisors. This event was initiated by students based in Fine Art departments at; the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Swansea, the University of Wolverhampton, Coventry University and London Metropolitan University. All abstracts have been peer reviewed under the guidance of a small team of senior researchers at the core of the NAFAE Research Network Group.
In the context of Fine Art, the various models of research practice and engagement that continue to evolve at postgraduate level represent a specific strength. Across a growing diversity of research strategies there is a genuine desire to build communities of thought, practice and enquiry. The importance of sharing experience and achievements across institutions and between organizations is self-evident; improving awareness and co-operation will inevitably offer fresh impact and enhanced outcomes from Fine Art research.
Against an international backdrop in which different countries are adopting different models, we are interested in exploring the rich mix of approaches in the UK and Europe. Our intention is the generation of continuing dialogues that will bridge understanding and improve knowledge exchange within our discipline.
