Code: SC/20/0143 MRC - Forced Migration - Creative Practice, (Self)Representation and Search for New Narratives

Dr Catrin Evans, University of Bedfordshire Explored from the perspective of being an arts-based
researcher, this session will focus on the growing interest in engaging cross-disciplinary arts-based
methods in research connected to forced displacement. Dr Evans will reflect on recent learning as a practice-based
doctoral researcher. She will make a case for the way in which arts practice can engage reflexively with the messier
aspects of human relationships and behaviour, whilst simultaneously pushing against the notion of research
participants as objects of study. She will explore how the search for self-authored narratives within participatory
arts practice intersects with observations about the ethics of (self)representation, before reflecting upon future hopes
for the place of art within Drawing Together, the project she is now working on with Professor Ravi Kohli within
the University
