Remaking Research

Identity and Publication Design
AICAD Annual Symposium

Hosted by Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design, Remaking Research was a “working symposium” centred on the pragmatics and possibilities of creative practice as research, both within art and design institutions and in the context of interdisciplinary, inter–institutional, and partnered relations.

Investigating the philosophical provocations provided by human–centered, expressive and experimental approaches to knowledge formation and critical inquiry, this gathering was centred around a series of primary themes and workshops, with the intent of sharing existing knowledge, showcasing new projects and contemporary methodologies, and addressing practical and ethical concerns involved in building successful research partnerships.
