We are throwing a launch party to celebrate the opening of the Sensorium Research Loft, a new space dedicated to supporting intermedial research in the arts. The Sensorium Loft will serve as a research lounge for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, as well as a bookable space for faculty, postdocs, and students for research-related meetings and events.

Join us at the launch to learn more about Sensorium, including the centre’s new mandate, research events and opportunities, and interdisciplinary work space. This will be a great chance to get involved with the centre and to meet Sensorium-affiliated researchers from different departments in AMPD and across the university. Following dinner and a brief Centre orientation, we will host a “Sensorium Research Swap” — the first in a year-long series of research exchanges, each gathering guided by a different creative score. If you wish to participate in the research swap, please bring an object that speaks to your research interests in some way. Any creative interpretation of ‘object’ is welcome — material or immaterial, real or imagined.

Please RSVP by emailing sensinfo@yorku.ca. This will give us a sense of numbers for food, research swap, etc.
