Creative Symposium – 5 December

Just finalising the details of our Creative Symposium which will involve many of the artists exhibiting in Μουσείον: artists’ reflections on museums.  It will take place on Wednesday 5 December 2012, 10am – 4.30pm in the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, and is open to PhD students, academics and also to MA students and some external visitors as well.  Booking will be on a first come first served basis and numbers are limited.  Please contact Alex Woodall to book a place (acw18).  Here’s a draft outline for the day which will be posed as a creative enquiry, with lots of opportunity for dialogue, reflection, discussion, handling, seeing and making – and maybe even answering some questions…
