Information about the online conference and workshop on 10 June:
This workshop investigates creative methodologies which can aid engagement with global challenges exacerbated by the climate crisis.
The event explores new, culturally relevant, arts-based methodologies that have the potential to provide safe spaces for reflection and deep engagement with a range of global challenges, with a focus on the climate crisis, such as environmental migration and racial justice, food security and health, sustainable development, and conservation.
Contributors (such as Zsófia Szonja Illés from MOME Budapest) will showcase a range of arts-based methodologies used in teaching and research engagement activities, as well as theoretical models based on participatory art, storytelling, digital approaches, in both face to face and virtual environments.
Our workshop enquires into the utility and applicability of arts-based methodologies as both novel pedagogies in Higher Education and research methodologies of public engagement. The workshop will explore ways in which such arts-based methodologies could spearhead change beyond the HE sector.
