Creative Research at Cardiff University: Professor Damian Walford Davies27 April 2017
During the filming of the Creative Research at Cardiff University video, we spoke to three academics in the Creative Cardiff Research Network about their work. We’ve identified three particular and related strands of creative research at Cardiff: research that involves working with creatives or creative organisations; research that involves creative outputs or methodologies; and research that investigates the creative economy.
The work of Professor Damian Walford Davies takes place right in the thick of this, as we found when we spoke to him about his role as a researcher and writer. Damian has published creative writing as well as critical work, although he tries to collapse these distinctions, as he explains in this interview.
We’re delighted to welcome Lisa Matthews on secondment from the Arts Council of Wales into the role of Director of Creative Economy, as Sara Pepper’s maternity cover. Lisa brings a wealth of skills and significant experience to the team.
