Interloops reframing collaboration

Caraboo Projects are really excited to invite you to ‘Interloops’. The series attends to what are often cast as obstacles in the relationships between collaborators, asking how they may actually be sources of creativity. Inspired by the innovative co-creative practices that have emerged in the last 18 months, these interactive workshops invite you to reframe the ethics, politics, and aesthetics of collaboration with the critical perspectives of artists. If you collaborate in any discipline or industry, we welcome you to bring along your experiences to this space of reflections.

Harshadha Balasubramanian is a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology, UCL, collaborating with the School of Communication at the Royal College of Art. Her research addresses the role of imagination and sensory experience in social and technological transformations. Harshadha’s current project, funded by the London Arts and Humanities Partnership, explores the emerging experiences and practices of performing artists who are adopting virtual reality (VR). Previously, while at Cambridge University, she investigated how vision was being reimagined by audio describers and sight-impaired theatregoers in the West End. This research has been shared in multiple practitioner-facing workshops and academic publications.
