The CREAM/CAMRI Doctoral Caucus is a self-organised group run by PhD researchers. Any PhD researcher and alumni at CREAM and CAMRI is encouraged to join and actively participate.
The aims of the Doctoral Caucus are:
- To provide a focus for developing a richer research culture or environment within the CREAM and CAMRI programmes.
- To establish a both formal and informal structure where PhD researchers can network, share, propose new initiatives and support each other; an opportunity for community-making and sharing of research.
- An opportunity to learn and enhance professional skills such as presentation, curation and editorial work.
To date, the Caucus has organised three group exhibitions and published the print journal/catalogue In Process in conjunction with these. As a result of our second exhibition, we were approached to devise proposals for a public art commission in Harrow, which has led to a Caucus member being awarded the commission. In addition, we have contributed to a number of CREAM research symposia and organised a series of reading groups and work sharing sessions.
