CfP MPE/MeCCSA Practice Network Symposium 2020 25th June, 2020
School of Media Arts & Technology, Solent University, Southampton, UK.

Provoking Practice: new forms of impact, reach and significance.
Rethinking the Cultural Value of Creative Practice Impact, Reach and Significance.

This Practice Network Symposium aims to frame practice-led, practice-based, practice as research and research for creative practice through the lens of research impact as we run up to 2021 REF. We especially invite responses from practitioners engaged in any research related activities across the range of media represented by MeCCSA, whose practice presentations can respond to questions, themes and ideas that include, but are not limited to:

• Sharing of approaches to narrativising impact claims for creative practice. • Examples of creative practice artefacts as research objects in their own right.
•	Showcasing of metrics of value and meaningful impact in creative practice.
• Case studies that explore constraints around the pursuit of creative research. • Evaluations of cultural value and return on social investment. • Responses to the challenge of creative practice in a metrics-driven H.E. environment. • Provocations and proposals that acknowledge the cultural value of creative practice.

Proposals may take the form of scholarly papers on these or other relevant themes, or presentations of practice-based, practice-led, practice as research or research for creative practice work from all manifestations of creative and media activity across the full range of interests represented by MeCCSA.

Non-traditional forms of presentation (for example, lecture-performances, videos, photo essays, installations, media artworks, short films, interactive websites, roundtable discussions etc.) are encouraged.

Papers presented at the symposium will be considered for a special issue of Media Practice and Education in 2021.

Please send abstracts/proposals (250 words approx.) for all presentations, papers, artworks or screenings, outlining their aim and form, along with a short biography to: (admin /at/

Hosted by the School of Media Arts & Technology, Solent University, the event will take place in the University’s purpose-built conference centre, an easy train journey from Central London.

The MPE/MeCCSA Practice 2020 symposium is supported by MeCCSA Practice Network
