DDCA Symposium – The Outstanding Field: artistic research emerging from the Academy

DDCA Symposium

The Outstanding Field: artistic research emerging from the Academy

19 – 21 March 2015 | VCA, MCM, The University of Melbourne 

I have been fortunate enough to be asked to present my research at the Australian Council of Deans and Directors of Creative Arts (DDCA) symposium - The Outstanding Field: Artistic Research Emerging from the Academy.

Organised by the wonderful Dr Barbara Bolt, the symposium is to be held at the Victorian College of the Arts and the Melbourne Conservatorium and showcases the most outstanding PhD projects to have emerged from the Creative Arts in Australia and New Zealand over the last decade. All presenters are PhD graduates whose thesis projects have been recognized for their quality and excellence. This recognition includes Chancellors Awards for excellence, national and international prizes and other external recognition of the innovation and impact of their artistic research. Presenters for this symposium have been sponsored by Creative Arts institutions from across Australia and New Zealand. It will be an invaluable experience for academics in Creative Arts programs, PhD supervisors in practice-led creative arts disciplines and students enrolled in creative arts PhD and MFA programs.

Date: Thursday the 19th — Saturday 21st of March 2015
Location: Federation Hall, VCA, Grant St, Southbank, Melbourne.
