We are hosting a conference focusing on arts and research for social change. The first ‘Carnival of Invention’ features 29 talks, workshops, performances, installations and displays, with sessions being delivered by more than 40 academics, artists and community practitioners from around the world.
The event is the inaugural conference of the Collaborative Poetics Network and is expected to attract people with an interest in the arts, research and social action.
Dr Helen Johnson, researcher, Senior Psychology Lecturer and an organiser of the conference, said: “This is an exciting event with a jam-packed interactive programme. It will be followed by an evening of spoken word and music at the Latest Music Bar in Manchester Street, Brighton, featuring performances from Kate Fox, Joelle Taylor, Jacob Sam-La Rose and Quiet Loner.”
Dr Johnson, a poet, will be performing during the evening as Helen Glasto.
The event on 15 June is at the University’s Falmer Campus. Tickets are £35, including lunch, refreshments and all events.
