This year, the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities are supporting their arts & humanities PhD students (based across 17 Scottish institutions) with residencies for creative practice, working with Cove Park to provide dedicated creative time, space, and freedom to develop their doctoral work within a supportive and inspiring context.

Lori Delaney is a Scottish based Theatre Maker and Performance Artist with 10 years professional practice experience, facilitating drama workshops in teaching and professional environments. She is currently completing a practice based SGSAH/ AHRC funded PhD at the UofG, where her research examines the potential of theatre to disrupt normative breast cancer discourse through representing the complexities of lived experience of the disease. Raising awareness of disruptive narratives via autobiographical performance methods, the research will engage women to co-create outputs and develop new, collaboratively devised theatre performance(s).

Lori is from Scotland and lives and studies here.
