About this Event

We would like to invite you to the annual AHRC Centre for Doctoral Training Student Conference (University of Sunderland and Northumbria University), which will be held at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Newcastle, on 26th October 2019 from 10:30 till 16:00

This student led conference for practice-based research in Art, Design and Craft aims to provide a dynamic forum in which to explore new ways of creating knowledge through practice, with a particular focus on the disruption of technology in our made environments.

The conference will contain a day of presentations, discussion and debate around contemporary themes that draw on the paradoxes of making today and by doing so begin to offer solutions for the made future.

The days issues will Include; Material Embodiment // Body and Hands// 3D Printing // Screen based design // Computational Materials // Algorithmically Generated Forms // Life Narratives Present in Objects // Current philosophical perspectives

In order to address our theme from multiple perspectives we have invited speakers from a range of disciplines and discourses, including the social sciences, anthropology, craft, design, art, philosophy and psychology.

Professor Tim Ingold: Keynote; Anthropologist and author of ‘Making: Anthropology, Archaeology, Art and Architecture’. https://www.abdn.ac.uk/socsci/people/profiles/tim.ingold
