Creative Challenge Series

The Creative Challenge Series, one of Aspect’s funded projects, aimed to show the scope of social science research and the artist’s relevance in today’s society as explorers of the challenges and issues that surround us.

Throughout this series, we reflected on the relationship between the social sciences, the arts and the phenomena of knowledge and education, gender equality, data ethics, and the environment. We took up these issues in a dialogue between academic specialists in these fields and artists working on these themes in order to create an index of ideas on the subjects.

As a springboard to generate new perspectives on the given themes, The Creative Challenge Series emphasises how joint-ventures could lead to coping mechanisms in a changing world, and present new models of looking at, and potentially tackling, the key issues of our time.

The series included four events:

  • The new normal: what is education after isolation? 18 August, 16:00 – Nicole Maloof + Dr Claire Gordon 
  • The politics of air: how does context motivate our environmental choices? 20 August, 16:30 – Josefina Nelimarkka + Dr Ganga Shreedha
  • Identity and data ethics: what does it mean to be human in digital space? 25 August, 16:00 – Linn Phyllis Seeger + Professor Ellen Helsper
  • Gender dimensions: how is inequality produced and reproduced in a time of crisis? 27 August, 16:00 – Zoé Aubrey + Dr Sumi Madhok
