ResCen Research Centre: Creativity and Performance Practices

Research Centre Publications Logo

ResCen, the Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts, is a multi-disciplinary, artist–driven research centre. It is designed to be a bridge between academia and the practices of professional performing artists. Established in 1999, its base is at Middlesex University, London. ResCen is centrally concerned with the artist at work, and with the ways in which the working artist, under the usual pressures of the arts marketplace, can be enabled to:

  • reflect on her/his own creative processes;
  • document these processes;
  • make these materials, musings and critical reflections available to others;
  • participate in knowledge exchange and transfer across research disciplines, professional specialisms and in a variety of social contexts;
  • contribute to policy and strategy debates in the arts nationally and internationally.

ResCen Publications was established in 2005. It is dedicated to publishing artist driven editions in book, DVD, CD and online forms, which relate to the creative process in contemporary performing arts. ResCen Publications encourages the innovative use of the site of publication: page; digital space; aural or visual track.
