We are saddened to report the death of Lorraine Lim on 13th September 2017. Lorraine was a much loved and respected student, researcher and teacher in the Centre for Cultural Policy Studies, and she will be deeply missed by her colleagues, students and friends at Warwick, at Birkbeck and in the wider academic community. She died in Singapore with her family and boyfriend at her side, following a recurrence of the cancer which she had continued to battle against. Her death came as a shock, especially for those of us who saw her at ICCPR in Seoul last year, where she enjoyed meeting up with many of her Warwick friends and seemed on sparkling form. She was undoubtedly a rising star in her field, and she will be remembered for her academic achievements and tireless professionalism but perhaps more especially for the infectious mixture of irrerverent humour, enthusiasm, intelligence and compassion which she shared with those around her. .../more
The Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies invites you to an event, The Future of Creativity on Thursday 6th July in the Helen Martin Studio, Warwick Arts Centre.
Recent years have seen an explosion of scholarly interest in creativity as the creative industries have moved from the margins to the centre of economic life. Creativity, and creative thinking can, it seems, provide solutions to a wide range of the social, economic and political dilemmas that contemporary societies face.
The Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies at the University of Warwick has spent over twenty years engaged in debates about the status and meaning of creativity, reflecting on and researching its role in social and political life and preparing students for work in the arts, media and creative industries. In this one day symposium, we invite researchers, teachers and practitioners to help us in re-imagining creativity for the future.
The day will be organised around two themes - Creativity and Democracy and Creativity and Sustainability. It will feature contributions from Nick Wilson (King’s College London), Farzhana Khan (Shake!) Sholeh Johnson (Julie’s Bicycle),Kate Sayer (Warwick Arts Centre) and Chris Bilton, Nadine Holdsworth, Lee Martin and Pietari Kaapa (University of Warwick)
Lunch is provided. Please register your intention to attend
