Notes on organisers and keynote speaker:
Dr Lee Campbell is an artist, curator and academic. His practice plays with the parameters of contemporary art that draw attention to the performative and the participative within an art historical vernacular and seeks to theorise, articulate and demonstrate how we may construct meaning between politics of space and the politics of artist articulated through visual and verbal languages. He is very interested in pedagogical approaches which prioritise performative tactics.
Fred Meller’s research interests lie in the process of making performance as a dialogical design practice. Specifically, how the principles and characteristics of Performance can be used to interrogate, explore and expand the nature of teaching and learning in the subject area. In particular, she has been researching disruptive pedagogy and relationships of power in teaching and learning and design practice.

She has worked at the University of Lincoln for 12 years and taught across a number of Degree Programmes. She has a background in Community Theatre and Student Engagement Initiatives.
