This symposium and workshops will be oriented towards practice-based/led research students, faculty, working practitioners & professional creative organisations. This collaborative principle is reflected in the involvement of the Creative Critical Practice Research Group (CCPRG), the Documenting, Publishing & Disseminating (DPD) platforms REFRAME & doctoral students from the University of Sussex, Royal College of Art, University of Brighton & University of West London.

As processes & materials generated by practice-based/led research cannot be directly published in the way traditional Arts & Humanities scholarship is, CCPRG identifies the need for a one-day symposium set in an interactive and creative environment which will offer training & critical insight on how practice can be represented in DPD.

Considering both digital and pre-digital modes of dissemination, NW/THN aims to look to interrogate two key questions: what do we lose or gain when we document and publish digitally? Are modes of DPD determined by targeted audience or/and nature of output? Because these questions have a resonance outside of academia, we propose a collaborative, multi and crossdisciplinary discussion about applied approaches.

NW/THN: Documenting, Publishing, Disseminating Objects & Experiences symposium is a collective initiative by CCPRG.

NW/THN: Documenting, Publishing, Disseminating Objects & Experiences symposium is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and supported by the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, University of Sussex.

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funds world-class, independent researchers in a wide range of subjects: ancient history, modern dance, archaeology, digital content, philosophy, English literature, design, the creative and performing arts, and much more.  This financial year the AHRC will spend approximately £98m to fund research and postgraduate training in collaboration with a number of partners. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
