Lesley Guy
PhD Researcher, Northumbria University

My research is part of a wider, collaborative practice but within this academic space I focus on examining and exploring the methods, and spaces, of collective art making. In particular, collective world building, as a response to the paradigm of individualism and perceived inability to affect change associated with neo-liberal conditioning. I ask: how can collaborative art practices and fictionalising modes such as storytelling, and game playing be used to create alternative spaces? Places for making-with and generating positive relationships.

Thesis Title:
Temporary Totalities: Creating spaces for collective contemporary art practice.
