SMFA presents STICKY THICK: Thinking through Practice
Practice Research Forum

Hosted by the School of Music and Fine Art, University of Kent, and the Sound-Image-Research Centre (SISRC), this annual one day symposium will bring together artists, writers, filmmakers, composers, actors and researchers across disciplines to investigate practice research as a continuing process of invention, and its capacity to generate dynamic and challenging modes of enquiry. 

Now in its third year this annual event forms a key part of the research culture and programme at SMFA, providing a platform for academics and research students to present and discuss their research with colleagues across the University and CHASE consortium, and with invited speakers.

With presentations from: Jaime Del Val, transdisciplinary media artist, philosopher, activist, Director of the Metabody Institute:; artists and filmmakers Ruth MacLennan, Sarah Turner, Shona Illingworth, Tim Meacham and Luciano Zubillaga; electroacoustic composer Aki Pasoulas; environmental scientist Joseph Tzanopoulos and Yvonne Salmon, Chair of the Cambridge University Counterculture Research Group and writer on law, literature and visual culture, this one day event opens up a dynamic space for discussion, debate and exchange.
