CRITgroup was started in 2011 by graduates from MIRIAD (Manchester Institute for Research and Innovation in Art and Design) at Manchester Metropolitan University but is open to creative practitioners at any stage in their career. It aims to facilitate an informal opportunity for those working in a broad range of disciplines to meet, share and discuss their practical work as well as issues impacting on their practices, be those professional or otherwise. While exchange and dialogue is encouraged, those who wish to attend but do not have new work to share are also very welcome.
To date, those involved in the group have practices ranging from Sculpture, Jewellery, Photography, 3D Design, Textiles, Book Art, Ceramics, Installation, Painting, Community Projects, Illustration, Tattooing, Curation and Graphic Design. We are now beginning our first collaborative project, which will run through 2013 and hopes to provide a basis for research into differences between disciplines.
