The Art of Research

‘The wealth of experience and enthusiasm of the artists made the process of visualising my research engaging and enjoyable. Many thanks to everyone who gave their time in organising and supporting the event.  A resounding success!’

On Wednesday 25th January, Dr Sue Liggett and Professor Mandy Robbins collaborated on a new event Wrexham Glyndwr University’s researcher development training programme entitled ‘The Art of Research’. The two hour session included a ‘speed dating’ session between MPhil and PhD students where participants had to explain their research to each other in one minute.

This was followed by a collaborative graphic facilitation of their research projects and students were paired up with artist researchers from the School of Creative Arts to create  a visual map of their MPhil/PhD journeys.  The event was held in the relaxed setting of the life drawing room at Regent Street, and was well received by students and staff alike; giving all who participated a chance to think and work in a different, exciting way.

Feedback was positive for this pilot event which will now become a regular feature of the programme.

‘A fabulous, well-organised morning; valuable in allowing me to look at my research from a completely new perspective.’

‘Fascinating to see the parallels that can exist in research from distinctly different subject areas, as well as how research interests can be reinterpreted through the lens of a different specialism.’

‘‘Working with an experienced artist gave me an insight into how to express my ideas differently.’

‘The wealth of experience and enthusiasm of the artists made the process of visualising my research engaging and enjoyable. Many thanks to everyone who gave their time in organising and supporting the event.  A resounding success!’
