All you need is in the room

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


Whether inside or outside the gallery, socially orientated processes present challenges of relationships, authorship, responsibility, multiple points of view and experience. Like the teacher, the role of the facilitator is key to navigate that process. Collaborative work involves different viewpoints, knowledge, understanding, personality and behaviour. This ongoing research aims to identify attitudes that might inform making art with others.

Exploring the terms collaboration, participation and engagement has encouraged dialogue and reflection, which will inform themes, processes and recommendations. Sociolinguistic enquiry has led to recognition that community can be constructed through social networks. The relationships of individuals, within these groupings can influence interaction, perception and impact upon pedagogy. A complementary personal research programme is used to explore my own approach as both a practitioner and as an artist facilitator.
