‘The Centre for Rural Creativity is pleased to announce its first series of Virtual Seminars. Each seminar addresses a different aspect of social engagement in relation to topical issues facing researchers and practitioners in the creative industries. The Centre welcomes researchers, students and professionals in the arts industries to take part.

Our seminars with Niamh Webster (‘Engagement and public participation: practical lessons from a democratic and civic perspective’) and Loraine Leeson (Art:Process:Change – works and learning 1977 – 2018′, hosted in collaboration with Middlesex University) got the series off to a fantastic start. We had participants tuning in from as far afield as Australia (at 4am!) and Switzerland as well as across the UK.
We are looking forward to hearing from Ailbhe Murphy (of Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts in Ireland) on ‘The Conversational Drive: Social Practice and Collaborative Modes of Knowledge Production’, 20/03, and Glen Loughran (Dublin Institute of Creative Arts and Media (DIT) on ‘Notes Towards an Archipelagic Art Education’, 27/04.
