July Celebration: Call for ideas and proposals
We will be holding a ‘Minor Movement’ Celebration on 1-5 July, in Edinburgh. The Celebration will involve (for example) workshops, discussions, playful happenings, music- and art-making, writing, talks, presentations, performances, and much more, that encompass the work of CCRI and the many initiatives and projects associated with it. The Celebration will be open to all.
The ‘First Thursday’ seminar series engages with innovative, creative and radical conversations about counselling and psychotherapy research and practice.
This will be a monthly session for staff and research students in the Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry and guests from across the University beyond, to use in any way that suits them to support their projects. The session can be used for very “traditional” presentations, followed by questions and feedback, but it can also be as experimental and/or participatory as necessary, including workshops, tests, focused groups, performative lectures, or occasionally visits to relevant locations. A single session could be devoted to one project, or divided into parts to focus on different projects.
The idea of this series of workshops is to generate transformations from one discipline to another. Each session will be an alchemical process of group inspiration, creation and collective reflection.
This reading group will provide an introduction to the key concepts, theorists, and techniques associated with American Relational Psychoanalysis.
Supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland, this project creates a new body of work based on the concept of 'narrative portraiture'. Visual artist Eleonora Scalise responds to research conducted by Dr Edgar Rodríguez-Dorans (Research Fellow at the Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry) with ten gay men from different ages and backgrounds. The resulting narrative portraiture artwork is inspired by anonymous interviews with gay men.
