Bron's blog http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blogs/bron en Workshop 1: The Experimental Condition - blogs now online http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/workshop1-blogs <p>On Thursday 15 and Friday 16 October, around fifty people gathered for the launch event of the Experimentality programme.&nbsp; Participants enjoyed twelve papers that explored the notion of experimentality in relation to a variety of domains, a performance of Ringside by the performance artist Mem Morrison, and a great deal of very lively discussion. The blog postings on the presentations and discussion from the workshop can now be viewed online.&nbsp; </p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/workshop1-blogs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/workshop1-blogs#comments Fri, 23 Oct 2009 10:49:14 +0000 Bron 133 at http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality Welcome to Experimentality! http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/welcome-experimentality <p><span class="inline inline-right"><img src="http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/sites/default/files/images/test tube-smaller.jpg" alt="" title="" class="image image-_original " width="142" height="483" /></span>To coincide with the launch event of <em>Experimentality</em>, we are launching this new, community website for the programme. Powered by the open source software Drupal, this website will provide up-to-date information about forthcoming events in the programme, viewable by category (workshops or art events) or in calendar form.&nbsp; As the year progresses, it will also contain documentation in different formats of the individual events - a record of talks, presentations and performances, but also of the ensuing discussion and debate.&nbsp; </p><p>But it also provides an opportunity to get involved in the programme in a more interactive way. You can register on the website, using the link at top right, and then create a profile indicating your interests and activities.&nbsp; You can then also create your own Experimentality blog, posting ideas and thoughts that relate to the questions being pursued in the programme.&nbsp; Importantly, you can comment on the blog postings by others, including the description of individual events, which will enable us to explore topics in more depth than is always possible during the events. You will also shortly be able to upload a profile picture and follow site activity using Twitter.</p><p>We hope that this website will extend participation in the programme to those unable to attend events, but also to create a space for more continuous discussion and sharing amongst participants.</p><p></p><div class="image-clear"></div><p><a href="http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/welcome-experimentality" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/welcome-experimentality#comments Wed, 14 Oct 2009 13:51:24 +0000 Bron 81 at http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality
