With your RoLs well under way now, (module ones) and research methodology's building (module twos) I thought it may be a good time now to invite you to share a little of 'your current practice' with each other, as YOU define it today, based on the learning so far from your RoLs and feeding in from Adesola's blogs this week also..
You may like to look at this through your blogs, and/or in person if you are able?
I blogged last week about a Practice as Research day that my colleague, Prof.Vida Midgelow is hosting on Thursday Nov 15, at the Hendon Campus, this would be a great opportunity for you to come and share something of your work in a practical environment (no writing involved!) if you would like to... Vida's aim is to build a community of artists, teachers, choreographers who engage in PaR and offer opportunities in terms of time and space for informal sharing of your areas of practice/research.
If you have something that has come to the fore of your mind through the process of drafting your AoLs, maybe Practice as Research is one of your titles, something which you actively engage with, or maybe it isn't a title yet, but in reviewing your learning you are seeing patterns emerge reflective of the context of your learning in this way? Areas of research in terms of your teaching practice, how you relate to teaching and learning as an individual, or maybe an interest to flesh out in the studio a research idea you're grappling with in words? The session is open to you as artists enrolled on the MAPP, alongside being open to current PhD students at Mdx. It will be an informal session, giving approx 30mins to each person wishing to share something of their area of research/practice, with opportunity to observe, comment, feedback within a supportive environment.
The session will run from 10am-2pm, please do let me know if you would like to attend, observe, contribute at all in person. I appreciate this may not be possible for many of you, and if you can't make it in person, please do think along these lines in your blogs this week and share within our on-line MAPP community.
Happy practice, research, moving, reviewing and learning for the week ahead...
