First issue of OPEN in the Exhibiting Season of Deepening Creative Practice with organisations

The first cohort of participants in the Deepening Creative Practice programme of TIHR have curated a series of invitations to practice and reflection. This first issue is available to view online or to download and will also be available in hard copy from the Institute.


OPEN Issue 1 draws on the work of the year-long programme and on the learning and insights from the contributions of artists and practitioners from a range of creative disciplines. It reflects  engagement with new, emergent and traditional practices. It captures a focus on the intersection between different kinds of knowledges – including organisation development, deep listening, bodywork and attunement – and attention to the scripts, both acknowledged and accidental – which inform our practice.


This first issue honours and enacts the creative process of the programme. The form, format, content and presentation play with the many overlapping and changing focuses over our five seasons of working together as a temporary organisation. Elements come into focus or disappear; fragments fall off the page or are difficult to read; the longing for connection is interrupted by assumptions, miscommunication and competing needs. The curators of this issue draw attention to the dynamics of scripts, the value of constraints, unfaithful memories and trust in emerging practice.


Keep an eye out for further issues from Deepening Creative Practice which will be available in the coming months.
