Supported by AHRC, Arts Council England, DTI and ESRC through the "Nature of Creativity" scheme presents four workshops in Performative Social Science

The Workshop Series will afford opportunities for participants to engage in hands-on experiences of working with concepts and tools from the arts and humanities in producing and disseminating research to wider audiences and/or in expanding teaching and practice—facilitated by artists, poets, performers and filmmakers.

# Who should attend the workshops?

We are looking for participants from a wide range of backgrounds—from researchers, students and teachers to artists and performers. These might include post-grad students, researchers, and practitioners from both the arts and sciences and from a wide variety of disciplines, including social science, media, healthcare, social care, business, the arts and education. We are interested in cross-pollination, from discipline to discipline and forming new alliances across borders. Imagination is the only prerequisite.

# How much will it cost?

The workshops are free and transportation costs will be provided, supported by the funding institutions. Workshops will take place from 10 am to 3 pm at Bournemouth, and lunch will be provided. Spaces are limited and will fill up fast!
