Creative ThinkTanks

As part of the CC+Me program of research, we regularly facilitate Creative ThinkTanks. In the Thinktanks, the project team work closely with the co-researchers to analyse and curate all the data that has been generated so far. The aim of these workshops is to create a series of collaborative artworks.  An example of such artworks is the the Past Now Future travelling exhibition. The students went through the thousands of photos that had been generated, and selected the ones which spoke to them most about climate change. They wrote messages on the backs of the photos, which were transferred into wax in the second ThinkTank workshop. They also reviewed all of the video interviews that had been produced over the course of the project, and evaluated them against a series of research criteria. In addition, the students engaged with creative research practices through poetry, stories, drawings and future imaginings. The Past Now Future exhibition was visited by over 10,000 community members.
