Then maybe the ‘Creative Communication Series’ is for you.
Creative communication aims to engage and inspire the audience. Creative communication products can include podcasts, videos, animations, infographics, interactive websites and more engaged written pieces. Creative communication can be used at any stage of a research project from recruitment right through to the sharing of the findings.
This series of seminars will help researchers at all levels to learn and develop knowledge and skills to communicate their research in more creative and accessible ways. Throughout this series we hope to:
We will host a seminar once every two months. Each seminar will be 1-2 hours long, depending on the topic and identified interest from attendees, and will be recorded and shared via videoconferencing facilities at Truro Knowledge Spa and Plymouth John Bull Building.
The series will aim to cover a range of topics including:
The first seminar set the context of creative communication and why it is so important and useful. This session also covered some fundamentals about how to start thinking about creative communication for your project. The session was recorded and is available to view under Past Seminar Events.
Where possible and where attendees express interest, further meetings or workshops can be arranged with speakers on the afternoon of the seminar. Please register your interest in a further meeting or workshop on the registration form above or email Becky Whear to discuss further.
Locations: Exeter South Cloisters 2.13, with videolinks to Plymouth Portland Square C403 and Truro Knowledge Spa F10.
We will begin with a talk by the artists about their work and how they address the challenges of communicating their ideas. Later Ian and Dan will lead a fun comic-book workshop where they will walk you through some of the skills and strategies they use in their books.
