Post-Residency Focus Group



P1000563On Tuesday 23rd July the Institute invited performance poet Howard Ingham (top image on left), who has also been working at the university and has done in various capacities for the last twenty years, to give a tour to the small focus group comprised of artists Jason Cartwright, Owen Griffiths, Becky Williams and Fern Thomas. Ingham’s tour reflected his personal account of the history, research and questions relating to the university.


Later the focus group wandered around the university buildings and grounds and sat in the cafeteria space in Fulton House to discuss issues surrounding the languages of art and science and the role of the artist in a university context. A micro project is in process to reflect this one day discussion.
