Join us on Monday 19th June 2023 from 10am-11am BST for our next Artful Inquiry:

Mudlarking and Organisation Change: 
What does an ancient practice on the Thames foreshore teach us
about how we can inquire into an organisation’s culture?

A truly immersive Artful hosted by dear friend of Mayvin Professor Rob Warwick from Mayvin’s partner institution, the University of Chichester.

We will explore:

  • What is mudlarking (with an immersive film) - the sense of perspective, the sounds and 'tuning in' to one's environment & drawing on Goethe's idea of 'exact sensorial imagination'. 
  • With the finds that we come across, what are the stories that we can tell?
  • Using mudlarking as a metaphor, what about our own organisational mudlarking? We'll draw on 'artifacts' (in the loosest sense); these could be old minutes of meetings, objects on a desk, pictures on a wall - anything, have a go at arranging a few of these on our virtual foreshores.

| Hosted by James Traeger and Professor Rob Warwick |

Professor Rob Warwick is Professor of Management and Organisational Learning at the University of Chichester. Rob switched to academia from a career in organisational change and development.
He has a doctorate in healthcare policy, focusing on the interaction between policy and frontline practice. This was gained whilst working as Head of Strategic Change for a large NHS organisation where he worked on a national healthcare initiative.
Rob’s fields of research include organisation development, ethics, action learning, leadership and education; topics that he is always keen to bring back to the classroom and share.
