Welcome to TCCE’s March 2019 e-newsletter.

 

 

Our e-newsletter this month is packed with an incredible and diverse range of events and activities taking place with many of our TCCE members and with our current flagship project Boosting Resilience.

There is much going on as ever but we would just like to say a warm word of congratulations to RCSSD’s Dr Ella Parry-Davies for being named as one of Radio 3’s New Generation Thinkers.



 

TCCE Projects and Activities

 

Upcoming on March 27th is our TCCE Creative Entrepreneurship Forum at London South Bank University. The forum aims, amongst other issues, to share experiences and thinking around the coming together of academic life, enterprise and entrepreneurship. We are still welcoming case studies and critical provocations (5-10 minutes) on topics within the broad fields of teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange – ranging from enterprise curriculum and pedagogy, critical responses to the challenges and ethics of enterprise in HE, to knowledge transfer partnerships and research commercialisation projects.

 

We also have two upcoming TCCE Arts and Health Forum events. On March 29 2pm-5pm, we are hosting Feminisms and Technology: New imaginings for future care and well-being at London South Bank University. The afternoon sets out to explore intersections between feminism, queer theory, speculative fiction, technology, archives, care and activism. We are doing so in order to challenge current narratives and practices and explore what notions of self-care, care for others and the environment may serve us best for the future. Discussions will explore topics including: VR as empathy machine and how affect is infused into the digital, inequality and digital presence, envisioning different futures and radical cultural practices as tools for social change. Speakers will include: Dr Elena Marchevska (London South Bank University), Dr Christine "Xine" Yao (UCL), Abira Hussein (Independent Curator and Researcher) and Charlotte Frost (Furtherfield).

 

Contributions from participants are welcomed, if you would like to present your work or research during the round-table please send us an email at info@tcce.co.uk by March 12th.

 

On April 10, we are hosting Culture Health and Well-being: Connecting research, policy and practice with confirmed speakers including: Professor Helen Chatterjee (UCL), Victoria Hume (Culture, Health and Well-being Alliance) and Richard Ings (Arts Council England).

 

Please note that more details about this event will be circulated in the next week and bookings will be able to be taken then too.

Information on all our fora is released via @infoTCCE and the e-newsletter.



 

Boosting Resilience

 

Momentum is now well and truly gathering for our final event for Boosting Resilience taking place at The Bluecoat, Liverpool on 14th March 2019. Beyond Resilience: Co-designing our creative futures will be a highly participative day of creative workshops, panel discussions and peer-to-peer sessions, marking the end of our two year programme supporting arts leaders from around the country to develop strategies for resilience through developing new approaches to making the most from their creative assets and Intellectual Property. Please note that tickets have been selling rapidly for this event and, as we write, there are a handful of places remaining.
