Last event: Thursday 8 December at 1pm

- Garret Theatre
Presented by Dr Evelyn Jamieson
Bringing Festive cheer to our proceedings, I would like to celebrate the passion we have as artists in being able to work together in our dynamic arts and cultural environment. Collaborative practice is a shared, mutually dependent, and constantly evolving dialogical process that has been the central focus of my practice and research since 2000. It is the key driver in my performance making, community facilitation and teaching as a member of staff here at the University of Chester. It is my view that through shared ownership, one can create a truly collective and innovative endeavour: “It is about crossing boundaries and entering another space together” (Jamieson, 2011). Today’s lecture investigates and demonstrates how we enter this space together in order to find points of intersection and develop understanding, practice and creative enterprise through a rich, creative collaborative process.
