The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures Ethics Committee are currently exploring the issues related to research ethics for practice-led, action-led and participatory research with the view of devising an appropriate approach to ethical review.

We invite all interested researchers – and especially those connected to the Centre for Practice Research in the Arts (CePRA) – to a workshop.

In the workshop we will:

• Draw out the principles of your research: How do you conceptualise knowledge?
• Explore the ethical principles that guide your research
• Reflect on your previous experience of going through the ethical review process
• Identify key issues in translating your research into the ethical review process
• Log possible ways in which the ethical review process could be adapted so that ideas can then be further refined and tested.

All welcome. Register your interest with Helen Graham (School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies and member of the Faculty Ethics Committee): h.graham@leeds.ac.uk

Ideas generated here will also be further discussed in the CePRA workshop on 12 June during which there will be panel Ethics in Practice Research. The Ethics in Practice Research panel will explore ethical relations between individuals in the socially inter-relating contexts of practice research.

The debates seek to illuminate responsibilities inherent in cycles of ethical practice appreciating relationality as a feature of the cultivation of ideas. Keep an eye out for further details.

This event is organised by the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures Ethics Committee in collaboration with the Centre for Practice Research in the Arts (CePRA).
