Description

Integrating Artistic Practice with Research Across the University

This workshop will explore how UBC scholars and artists can initiate collaborative research projects across the arts, humanities, and sciences and with the larger community of Vancouver. The morning program will feature discussions and presentations to highlight both the opportunities and challenges of meaningful research collaborations that engage artistic practice with a variety of scholarly endeavors. Following a catered lunch, we will host a live workshop performance of the theater piece SLIME
, followed by a discussion of how the PWIAS can facilitate a vibrant program engaging scholars from around campus with arts-based research initiatives. Janice Price, President and CEO of Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity will be our special guest for this workshop.
