Kick-off Event CUO I Social Spaces (2) on February the 4th
As part of the integration of the KU Leuven and its university colleges, Social Spaces (MAD-Faculty) and the Centre for User Experience Research (CUO, iMinds) have merged into a joint research group called Social Spaces|CUO. Together we pursue research projects in which we combine our complementary skills for designing socially relevant interactive applications and artefacts.
In order to celebrate this new joint research group, we invite you to a kick-off event. A combination of an interesting speaker (Froukje Sleeswijk-Visser) and a practical workshop (MAP-it) will give you a glimpse of the topics and methods our joint group is working on.

“Sound & Image”
„Sound & Image“ is a day devoted to lectures, debates and performances exploring sound in relation to visual art forms. In the first part of the day (11am – 4pm) doctoral students and artistic researchers present their research to a critical group of fellow doctoral students, supervisors and experts. This takes place in the context of SeminArt, a cross-association seminar aimed at doctoral researchers in the visual arts.
The second part of the day (4.30pm – 10pm) is open to a wider audience of artists, students, researchers and anyone interested in the topic of sound & image. The day concludes with a performance by the experimental tuba player and composer Robin Hayward, followed by the multidisciplinary improvisation performance „2 x 2“ (Peter Jacquemyn, Klaas Verpoest, Sigrid Tanghe and Jan Pillaert). „Sound & Image“ is organised by LUCA – Faculty of the Arts in collaboration with SeminArt/HISK, Transmedia Impact Sessions and M – Museum Leuven. All lectures and debates are in English.
