Visual Research Network: Deadline June 15th

Deadline to Apply June 15th 2019

THE REPRESENTED, THE AESTHETIC AND THE HUMAN through VISUAL CREATIVE PRACTICE.The Residency: 29th Aug to 3rd Sept in the Peak DistrictThe Conference: 5th and 6th Sept 2019 at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, University of Manchester


The aim of this event is to channel and showcase new perspectives and approaches that visual practitioners, practice researchers and visual ethnographers are currently employing in their work. In order to enrich visual practices toward new disciplinary horizons, we therefore advocate for a visual, sonic, experimental, and more widely multisensory cross-disciplinary knowledge.

The VRN Residency Conference aims to bring together visual researchers and practitioners, who are actively working with visual methods in their own fieldwork or their practice-as-research. It welcomes participants from a variety of disciplines, including, visual anthropology, filmmaking, music, fine arts, performance arts, animation, and photography.

The event is composed of a five-day residency open to 12 participants, a 2 day conference including participants of the residency and external presenters.

During a five-day residency, participants will inhabit a shared creative and living space at an appropriate location, and will be working on their own visual materials in order to enhance the narrative of their research, but, more importantly, work collaboratively in the pursuit of pushing the creative boundaries through experimental methods. The five-day residency will become a space for collective learning and artistic creation in which we will share experiences from our own respective projects, as well as give rise to new and unforeseen practical outcomes.

The two-day conference seeks not only to explore and debate the long-standing legacies of audio-visual research, but wants to create a productive and inspiring discussion through an active and embodied involvement, so that every participant can effectively express and communicate their own practice through multisensorial, emplaced, participatory, embodied, experimental, and collaborative approaches. Filmmaker and researcher Dr. Catarina Alves Costa will deliver this year's keynote speech.
