This session focused on Fine-art Practice-led PhD research with reference to Donald Schon’s ‘Action research’ and examples from The Laboratory of Dissent, The Winchester Gallery, 2015.
‘Donald Alan Schon (1930-1997) trained as a philosopher, but it was his concern with the development of reflective practice and learning systems within organizations and communities for which he is remembered. Significantly, he was also an accomplished pianist and clarinettist – playing in both jazz and chamber groups. This interest in improvisation and structure was mirrored in his academic writing, most notably in his exploration of professional’s ability to ‘think on their feet.’
