During our first year we offered a programme of ’52 Things’ made with and for the city’s creative community to showcase the fantastic people and places in our city. You can find the full 52 here.

This interdisciplinary research seminar will include 10 minute presentations on three different projects, before offering the opportunity for questions and some discussion. The seminar will be followed by the launch of Dr Dawn Mannay’s book: Visual, Narrative and Creative Research Methods (Routledge, 2016), and wine and refreshments.

  • Find out more about how those in a range of disciplines are using visual methods
  • Hear examples of how academics have collaborated with creatives
  • Meet with others interested in using visual methods in their work

This event is for academics at Cardiff University, and anyone else interested in visual methods and collaboration between creatives and academics.
