Creative Arts and Design Discipline+ Catalyst

Upcoming Events

Past Events

Building on ‘Reading & Writing Place’, hosted by the Literature Catalyst at the University of Stirling in November 2021, the Creative Arts & Design Catalyst will present an afternoon of talks by practitioners and researchers who root their current projects in specific locational contexts.

  • Précis Writing

This two day event restages elements of the course in commercial and précis writing followed by Muriel Spark at Heriot-Watt College in 1934. A contextualising presentation and panel discussion about the craft of writing/Spark’s editorial practice, will be followed by practical workshops based on the syllabus and textbook she used. 

  • Putting Theory into Practice 

Through plenary sessions featuring three plenary speakers, and three workshops led by PhD students undertaking practice-based degrees, or recent graduates of those degrees, we will explore three strands of creative practice as informed by theory:  film and visual culture, creative writing and music composition. 

  • Re-enactment in research

A series of presentations by Scottish based and international academics in a roundtable/panel format with moderated discussion focussing on the use of re-enactment as a methodology in research.
