Presented by:
ResCen (Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts), Middlesex University, with ResCen Research Associates Ghislaine Boddington, Shobana Jeyasingh, Richard Layzell, Rosemary Lee, Graeme Miller and Errollyn Wallen.

For over four years the artists affiliated to ResCen have been meeting to discuss the processes that form and influence their work. These discussions inform a series of external public seminars.

'Making Space' is the third public seminar this academic year. The ResCen artists will engage in conversation with Doreen Massey, Professor of Geography at the Open University. Doreen is particularly interested in the theorisation of 'space' and 'place'. Her areas of research range through a critique of globalisation, regional uneven development, and the reconceptualisation of place. Her modes of working are diverse: from the philosophical and largely conceptual through to the directly political.

The Research Associates and Doreen will interrogate notions of space in relation to their individual practices. Areas of discussion will include: material engagement with place; time/ space and subjectivity/political responsibility; moving beyond surface space; and creating spaces for new thinking.

There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion both at the seminar and afterwards on our new online forum at www.rescen.net

Entrance to the seminar is free.
