We recognise that the impact of our research not only depends on the quality of research outcomes, but on reaching and creating informed audiences. We see access to specialist audiences, networks, interest groups and the debates within professional fora as central to enabling and enhancing impact. We seek both to connect with wider audiences for challenging forms of contemporary practice, and engage in highly developed specialist discourses. Impact depends on revolutionary and innovative insights, but their application in the world depends on effective dissemination.
