Research Event at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

COLLISIONS is an annual festival that showcases the thriving doctoral practice research community at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and across London institutions more broadly.  Through COLLISIONS, research degree students and creative fellows engage with what it means to be researching with, through, in and by practice, and share this engagement with a wider academic and public audience. 

This year COLLISIONS is particularly interested in curating conversations around accessibility and quality within practice research. Drawing inspiration from Rachel Hann’s argument for a second wave in practice research, where new knowledge and insights should be accessible beyond the individual project, COLLISIONS 2019 aims to encourage dialogue across projects and ask how our research insights might speak to each other’s work.
