CIRCLE Research Network

Creative Interdisciplinary Research in Collaborative Environments

CIRCLE's members are researchers and creative practitioners at the University of Edinburgh and elsewhere. They work across the creative arts, architecture, the humanities, the physical and social sciences. Their research focuses on developing creative collaborative environments, employing methods across disciplines. Their aim is to develop effective and affecting interactive environments, within a critical framework, seeking the insights that interdisciplinary inquiry might allow.

CIRCLE symposium 2014

CIRCLE symposium 2014 explores how circulation of information might result in knowledge exchange, and how the maximisation of active engagement with the circulated information might trigger appropriate transformations of the initial pieces of information through which new (areas of) knowledge might be accessed or generated. The role of interdisciplinary research encounters is very important in this process.


CIRCLE symposium 2014 is a three stage 'playful' event -

  • Materials

    Each network offers a piece of material (an idea, a question, a process, an example of something) for a pool of materials for everybody to use.

  • Processes

    Each network selects a piece of material offered by another group and proposes a way to use this material.

  • Making

    Each network, or even individual people, or even new temporary groups select one of these propositions and tries to undertake the proposed process in some way over a period 3 days (26 to 28 of May).

Stage 3 will be broadcasting online from 26 MAY to 28 MAY
