Bailey, Rowan (2014) Re-writing the Archive - Writing-PAD workshop event. In: Re-writing the Archive - Writing-PAD event, 22 October 2014, University of Huddersfield, UK. (Submitted)

This Writing-PAD discussion forum and workshop event is designed to stimulate collaborative conversations and exchanges, in and around the archive, with a view to developing a clear set of concepts and approaches, abstracts and ideas, contributing towards a guest edited issue in the Journal of Writing in Creative Practice. A call for issue will be formulated as part of this event, based on the ideas generated out of the forum.

As a way to stimulate re-writings of the archive, the forum will provide an opportunity for you to bring your own archival experiences to the table for discussion. We invite you to join us if you are keen to explore different approaches and styles of writing that resonate with the ‘archival’ as a concept and as a practice.

This collaborative event will shape and form the directives of the guest-edited issue.
Resources on the topic of the archive and workshop activities will be provided.
Themes for exploration:
Writing with and through the archive, expanding the field of the archive as a creative concept, experimental uses of the archive in art and design making, material engagements with the past and formations for the future, geographic site as archival resource, fictions of the archive and storytelling, digital platforms, coding and de-coding materiality, creative systems of classification, co-creation in the archive, design innovations through the use of company archives, exploring relationships between copyright, intellectual property and appropriation, archival interplays between materials and things, the public archive versus the domestic archive, the studio as archive, making histories and futures through creative practice, identifying archival inheritances in art and design, working with art education archives, teaching archival interventions within the context of art, design and architecture, and fostering inter/multi/trans-disciplinary encounters in the archive.
