Links & Shifts
Sunday 21st of August, 2:30-5:30
Birmingham Open Media, FREE
Links & Shifts brings together three practitioners to discuss the similarities and differences in their working processes.
Nikki Pugh (artist), Kat Jungnickel (sociologist) and Emily Chappell (writer) have all taken the experience of cycling as the starting point for their work. Through a combination of presentations and panel discussion, they will explore how they go about understanding things through doing and making. They’ll also talk about the methods they use to move between the practical stage and the final outcome.
Come and join us if you have an interest in practice as research, embodied modes of knowing, storytelling, or just enjoy a good bike ride. There’ll be tea, cake, book signing and a chance to wear Kat’s research whilst pedalling a suitably aged bicycle.
Tickets are free, but strictly limited. Reserve your place at https://linksandshifts.eventbrite.co.uk
Emily had her first book published in January and is well known in cycling circles for her blogging; winning Travel Blogger of the Year at the 2012 British Travel Press Awards. She also writes for the Guardian. She’ll be ‘fresh’ back from taking part in an endurance cycle race across Europe and will be talking about (or rather doing) the bit between living the experience and turning the memories into stories and the written word.
