ORGANIZER / PRESENTER: Leigh Garrett, University for the Creative Arts, UK

Online Registration: December 5th - February 20th

This workshop will enable participants to actively explore the nature of research data in the visual arts and the essential elements of its appropriate management.

For researchers, the effective management of research data helps validate and contextualise the outputs of artistic research, while at the same time supports the research method by enabling researchers work more effectively and to mitigate against the risk of data lost. In addition, many funders in the UK now require data management plans to be submitted as part of the funding process.

Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and led by the Centre for Digital Scholarship, a research centre of the University for the Creative Arts, and working in partnership with Falmouth University and the Glasgow School of Art, the VADS4R project is currently developing a series of tailored skills development workshops and materials on research data management in the visual arts. These are focused on the needs of early careers researchers and postgraduate students in the visual arts and will be piloted over the course of the current academic year. Through utilising this emerging knowledge and practice, participants will be given an opportunity to:
> examine the nature of research data in the visual arts and why is it important and to whom;
> learn about the key requirements of good research data management and what to consider when when planning your own approach;
> explore the vital elements of the data management planning to help support your funding proposals.

The workshop will consist of a mixture of presentations and participant led activities. It will be an abridged version of the full program currently being piloted but it will offer introduction to this vast and complex area, and participants will be able to access to the online toolkits for independent review following the session.
