On Wednesday 1 March, join us for a lunch-time session where the O A R team will be talking about their experiences of disseminating inventive research and creative output through their new innovative platform O A R (Oxford Artistic and Practise Based Research Platform).
O A R: The Oxford Artistic and Practice Based Research Platform is an online journal and research platform that engages with new and experimental ways of participating in knowledge production, specifically through practice based research. Practice based research is understood as a form of research that is innovative, dynamic, artistic, and anchored in practice. Although practice based research is becoming a key paradigm across different disciplines, it often remains theoretically enclosed within the realm of the arts. Our goal is to treat it as a broad, multidisciplinary epistemological category, so that its grounds and boundaries can be explored, expanded, questioned and redefined.
