Always Already: Impact and the Everyday

July 2nd @ The Humanities Lab, Silverstone building, Sussex University, Falmer, 9.30 – 5.00pm.
July 3rd @ Lighthouse, 28 Kensington street, Brighton, 9.30 – 5.00pm.

The Sussex University Creative and Critical Practice Research Group
(CCPRG) presents a two-day event exploring the relationship between creative
practice and research, inside and outside the academy. The event will
interrogate the manner in which experimental practice/critique/research
partnerships address impact as an ‘always already’ present aspect of
creative and social practice. The two days will include papers,
performances, films and workshops from across a broad range of disciplines,
including music, law, sociology, maths, performance art, and more.
