Reflections on creativity: the role of theory in creative practice


This website provides the proceedings of a conference held at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design on 21 and 22 April, 2006, entitled 'Reflections on creativity: the role of theory in creative practice'. The conference papers can be downloaded in PDF format. The conference and the publication were funded by the AHRC under their Workshops and Networks Scheme. The conference stemmed from a working party that was set up to examine the role and teaching within the Duncan of Jordanstone College. Papers covered issues as: practice-led research; the effect of academic research on creative practice; creative theory; artistic research and the role of the critique; and the tensions between theory and practice.
