Invitation: lecture Rolf Hughes & Gerard De Zeeuw
New website: TRADERS at tr-aders.eu
The TRADERS website has been launched!
As of September the 1st the FP7, Marie Curie Multi-ITN project ‘TRADERS’ (short for ‘Training Art and Design Researchers in Participation for Public Space’) has started. TRADERS researches the ways in which art and design researchers can ‘trade’ or exchange with multiple participants and disciplines in public space projects and – at the same time – trains them in doing so. The project is an international collaboration between Faculty of the Arts (KHLim, LUCA, KU Leuven), research group Social Spaces I CUO) (Belgium), University of Gothenburg/School of Design and Crafts (Sweden), Design Academy Eindhoven (Netherlands), Royal College of Art/School of Architecture (United Kingdom), Chalmers University of Technology/Department of Architecture (Sweden) and KU Leuven/Planning and Development and the Architecture and Culture Theory research units (Belgium).
If you want to know more about the project, you can now visit the TRADERS website at www.tr-aders.eu

TRADERS: call for ESRs
Are you interested in joining an enthusiastic, international and interdisciplinary team of art and design researchers? And are you willing to conduct thought-provoking research in a participatory context?
‘TRADERS – Training art and design researchers in participation for public space’ is an FP-7, Seventh Framework Programme/Marie Curie Actions (http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/about-mca/actions/itn/) project that focuses on developing and testing a methodological framework on which art and design (A&D) researchers can rely when working on public space projects in participatory ways. This framework is transferable and aims to enhance the potentials in A&D practices to contribute creatively in processes of changes in public space and branches related to the public space, such mobility or health.
‘TRADERS’ is a network of 6 hosting Partner Institutions (and 5 (SME) Associate Partner Institutions): Faculty of the Arts, LUCA/Katholieke Hogeschool Limburg (Belgium, www.mad-fac.be), University of Gothenburg (Sweden, http://www.gu.se/), Design Academy Eindhoven (Netherlands, http://www.designacademy.nl/), The Royal College of Art, School of Architecture, (United Kingdom, http://www.rca.ac.uk), Chalmers University of Technology, Department of Architecture (Sweden, http://www.chalmers.se/) and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium, http://www.kuleuven.be/)
The project offers 6 positions for early stage researchers (ESRs), who will be involved in the project for a duration of 36 months (full-time equivalent), starting on 1 February 2014. The research fields that are particularly relevant to this call are: Art, Design, Architecture, Sociology and Anthropology.
