About: For this seminar series session, we will hold a roundtable on the potential for creative interventions in knowledge organization research. Each presenter will share their contribution to the collective project, Useful+Beautiful, which features the creative work of library, archives, and museum workers, students, and faculty who are also poets, visual artists, playwrights, makers, tinkerers, and fiction writers. The project is based in the belief that collaborative arts-based techniques are useful for (re/dis/) organizing knowledge, collectively conjuring information worlds that feel like home, and making libraries and archives and museums that hold space for expansiveness, desire, and creativity. We will talk about the formation, findings, and results of the work, as well as future directions for the research. The roundtable will invite conversation, questions, and ideas from everyone in attendance.
