The impermanent and shifting impact of globalisation, economic division and migratory encounters across territories along with the impact of post-industrial legacy is increasingly reshaping the understanding of space and place as a location of meaning and identity construction. CCFT is delivering an on-going international research programme through interwoven, overlapping and interrelated meetings, investigations and dissemination points in cases for study designated as “Nomadic Dialogues”.
CCFT’s is asking in what ways creative practices continue to play a part in shaping place identity in the cases of study. And how can an understanding of this contribute to the creative production and communication of new forms of understanding in the cases for study?
Through this CCFT seeks to critically reflect upon and acknowledge the implications of participating in and engaging with the dialectic relevance of how the cases for study are implicit to understanding the dynamics of our wider shared cultural and political knowledge enacting itself today. To also engage with the identified complex histories held in the cases for study in order to contribute and communicate new knowledge and insight for others through CCFTs interdisciplinary artistic research methodology.
Keywords: Place meaning, place making, Identity, Memory, Climate Change, Migration, Digital culture
