Abstract

This project used the immersive artist in residence model as a framework for trialling an alternative mode of module delivery with second and third year undergraduate BA (Hons) Dance students. The project was funded by the Centre for Educational Research and Development and received in-kind support from East Lindsey District Council.

The artist in residency model took the form of an optional four-week project in Skegness throughout June 2012. During the residency, students took part in tutor led morning yoga classes and student led evening technique classes. They delivered outreach workshops at Skegness Junior School and at various residential homes for the elderly. They documented their work using flip cameras and blogs and engaged in whole group discussions to contextulaise their learning. They created site-specific performance work, The Companions of Skegness, which was wholly rooted in their experience of the town and which formed a substantial part of the international SO Festival. The project contributed to an on-going involvement with the Health, Arts and Events Team of East Lindsey District Council.

The evaluation document aims to assess the advantages (intended and consequential) and disadvantages (considered and revealed through the process) of using the artist in residence model in comparison to the regular format of weekly delivery over a period of twelve weeks and draws from participant and teacher feedback to consider its impact.

The evaluation document is being prepared for submission to the journal Research in Dance Education. An article is also being prepared for Choreographic Practices.
