Action Research

Most of the projects we are engaged in follow a need to embed an element of new research and we  encourage and test new ways of working critically. We assess all our projects and look at the way we assess often trying to use innovative methods of collecting data. These include commissioning independent and outside writers, artists and curators to be critical of our projects, commissioning texts and participatory performances or workshops which attempt to look at the projects, events or exhibitions in new ways.  A good example of this is our Open format exhibitions where we will always offer an alternative to the traditional selection. This year (2013) we commissioned We Are The Warrior by artists Juneau Projects, this project looks at and questions the Open format – we also commissioned a polemic text from Dave Beech. for the 2010 edition.
