What is it to disseminate? Why do it at all? Does a creative practitioner or artist need to be concerned with additional documentation tasks, promotional activity and analysis? What about practice in the academic context? Kirk Woodford and Micheál O’Connell will discuss these questions with reference to both education/research conventions and the changing landscape i.e. digital publishing, social networking and the relationship between original and the various forms of dissemination. The session will include a practical aspect: an exercise in responding to an actual event, details of which will be finalised closer to the workshop date.
