Description

Screen Production Research Engagement and Impact - A One-Day Symposium

While the screen production discipline is firmly getting to grips with what it means to research about, for and with the screen, a new research challenge emerges - how to see this research as engaging with those beyond the academy, and having impact. In many ways this new challenge should be easy for screen production, given the nature of its form, audience and intent; but it is not so easy when we put research into the mix. What is the relationship between research and engagement? How can impact be measured in relation to research intentions and contribution?

Supported by UTS and the peak body for screen production education and research in Australia, ASPERA, this one-day symposium connects the academy with industry to ask these very questions and ​explore possible strategies. As well as leading screen production and creative practice researchers, the symposium will benefit from the participation of key figures from the screen and affiliated industries, including Screen Australia, SBS and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
