16-19 December 2003 | Visible Evidence XI, University of West of England, Bristol,
A peripatetic international and interdisciplinary conference on the role of film and video as witness and voice of social reality, which encompasses a wide range of cultural, political, social, historical, ethnographic and pedagogical questions and perspectives from fields such as anthropology, architecture, art history, ethnic studies, gay and lesbian studies, history, journalism, law, medicine, political science, sociology, urban studies and women's studies.
The conference has established the format of a single stream of around 15 panels over four days, augmented by separate screenings with invited film makers, generally (but not exclusively) from the host country. The conference seeks to expand beyond a purely academic schema and make links with filmmakers, curators and producers, in order to engage in debates on contemporary documentary practice and to explore the space between the perspectives of scholars and cultural producers and promoters. The Eleventh edition will be convened by the School of Cultural Studies at the University of the West of England and hosted by the Watershed Media Centre. Evening screenings will be curated by Vertigo Magazine and DocHouse, reflecting the recent growth of interest in the UK in both the production and exhibition of independent documentary.
9 February 2003 | The Artist as Catalyst, Whitechapel Art Gallery, 80-82 Whitechapel High Street, London, 18.15
ResCen, Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts Middlesex University presents ResCen Research Associates Ghislaine Boddington, Richard Layzell, Rosemary Lee and Graeme Miller in conversation with anthropologist Professor Tim Ingold. Contact Natalie Daniel, firstname.lastname@example.org, 020 8411 6288/2710.
For over two years the ResCen artists have been meeting in closed sessions to discuss the processes that form and inform their work. This seminar is the third in a series that focuses on themes drawn from their past discussions. This seminar focuses on the artist as 'skilled practitioner' working in a variety of contexts which demand new applications of their skills and knowledge. Each of the ResCen artists has experience of creating catalytic spaces which facilitate interactions and developments intrinsic to the creative process in the performing arts, but which also have important experiential significance for participants. ResCen artists have worked in community settings, schools, higher education and business and have provided the artist's perspective to agencies and government. This suggests that the ability to engage in a variety of contexts, often beyond the professional venue, is important to artists and that there are aspects to artistic practice that serve as 'active ingredients' which drive this work. The seminar will explore the work/behaviour of the skilled practitioner operating in a range of domains and will raise issues concerning the nature, motivation and efficacy of such work.

18-22 July 2005 |The articulate Practitioner - Articulating Practice , University of Wales, Aberystwyth
The Magdalena Project, founded in Wales in 1986, is a dynamic international network, providing a space for women's performance work and a platform for critical investigation.
This international forum of performance makers and scholars will offer a 4 day programme of performance, lectures, presentations, and artist-led workshops. Confronting the language divides between scholarship and artistic production, the aim is to create an intellectual meeting ground of ideas, words and works that challenge what it means to 'articulate' practice.
The intention is to identify, reveal, develop and record vocabularies that might be useful, to both practitioner and scholar, in the development of an understanding of the processes engaged in the making of effective performance; performance intended for, and surviving within, the public domain.
