ART-AI Writing Retreat 2021

Our students took part in a 3 day residential Writing Retreat at the Ammerdown Retreat Centre this summer.

Our students took part in a 3 day residential Writing Retreat at the Ammerdown Retreat Centre in Radstock, Somerset, this summer.

The aim of this Writing Retreat was to bring ART-AI students together, away from their normal environment, to allow them time to focus on their writing for 3 days. Our 2019 Cohort are coming to the end of the first year of their PhD research and focused on their Confirmation Report, while our 2020 Cohort are coming to the end of the MRes year and focused on their Interdisciplinary Thesis Formulation Report.

The event was very well received by all, with one of the attendees saying “The ART-AI writing retreat was a resounding success, each evening we self organised a pub quiz which seemed to be enjoyed by all. The peaceful and serene settings gave a perfect environment to concentrate, work and collaborate. Personally I was able to work out some coding issues with a few of the others which wouldn’t have been possible without the retreat! With fantastic food to keep us fuelled and supportive company it was a very productive session for myself and many others and I look forward to the next one.

Due to its success, we are hoping to add this to our busy events calendar as an annual summer event.
