A short Introduction to the Media, Arts and Design Research Centre 

Wednesday 2 March 2016, 12.45pm

Oriel Sycharth Gallery, Wrexham Glyndŵr University

Dr Susan Liggett, Head of the Media, Art and Design Research Centre at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, will lead this informal gathering aimed at anyone interested in art and research. As well as a short introduction describing the aims of the centre, there will also be the opportunity to meet some of the centre's Professors and research staff.


The ethos of the Media, Art and Design Research Centre is that teaching is informed and improved by research. The strategy is underpinned by the delivery of a research seminar series of talks from academic and non-academic contributors with the aim of fostering collaboration between stake holders and encouraging interdisciplinary projects that utilise other areas of expertise within Wrexham Glyndŵr University.


Dr Susan Liggett is Head of the Media, Art and Design Research Centre, a practising painter and Reader in Fine Art at Glyndŵr University. She has a PhD from the University of Wales, a Post Graduate Diploma in Painting (MA) from the Royal Academy Schools London and a BA (Hons) from Nottingham Trent University. Her work explores personal memory within the genres of landscape, figure and still life painting. She also works on collaborative research projects using performance and film that investigates applications of the creative process.
