Research on Tap: Creative Research

Research on Tap: Creative Research

Hosted by Lynne Allen, Director, School of Visual Arts, and Professor of Art, CFA; and Ty Furman, Managing Director, BU Arts Initiative Standard research is about innovative thinking and practice, about making and testing assumptions, performing, proposing, speculating, asking questions and paving the way for new questions or propositions to be made next time. It is about the illumination of new knowledge around an identifiable theme and question, engaging with the known in new ways, constructing, proposing and testing assumptions. Creative arts-based and arts-led research involves imagination, invention, speculation, innovation, and risk-taking. New knowledge is made possible through the materiality of practice itself. Such practices can be of the most challenging order intellectually and technologically, the most revealing and moving emotionally, the most embodied physically, or the most disquieting politically. This Research on Tap session will explore how artists, writers, thinkers, and researchers use creativity as an essential part of their research.

4:00pm on Thursday, January 18th 2018
