Description

Invited contributor to an event:
As part of ongoing efforts to better understand how “arts-practitioners in academia”* document their research, Documentation is personal as it is varied. It might mean the snippets we capture at the moment, squirrelled away to later use to reveal aspects of the research process/context that the work itself obscures; whether for REF, or a journal article, or a personal blog. Equally, documentation can be the time/resource-intensive process of tracking the operation of work from start to finish and onwards.
A survey of UK researchers was subsequently developed by PRAG.
PRAG-UK is a body established by members of the HE arts research community to increase the visibility and accessibility of UK Practice Research and its impact, and to make this research more searchable internationally. It aims to:
• Reveal, position and promote the world-leading research taking place in the UK’s creative and cultural sector;
• Make explicit the contribution made by Practice Research to industry and to the creative economy, by contributing to the HE sector’s preparation for REF2021 and its legacy;
• Build an evidence base and support the development of a stronger research-informed Creative and Cultural Industries sector;
