Series of workshops "Drawing (inter) actions collaborative research, Art and Care for ecosocial (re)balance" led by Seila Fernández Arconada at the University of Bristol
A collaboration with the Public Engagement team, the Research Governance team and the Cabot Institute at the University of Bristol. May 2022.
“This creative space enabled us to explore the wider implications of research and encourage dialogue between different kinds of knowledge. This shared experience was guided by artistic collaborative methods and practices of care aiming to contribute to the research ethics process at University of Bristol.
Reflecting on the research implications in the context of the climate emergency can reinforce the need to (re)draw interactions with other kinds of knowledge, other narratives and other species. Artistic practices can provide an inclusive, thoughtful and experimental setting to explore alternative forms of engagement while envisioning future scenarios, considering different voices (grounding research in a wider context) and reflecting on controversial topics such as sustainability, nature, resilience and uncertainty.'
