Dr Keir Williams is a creative technologist, educator and researcher. Underpinning his approach to all three is a philosophy that recognises the potential for art, design and technologies to make and take on practical and effective roles in wider society and culture. His research and practice considers participatory processes and structures in relation to accessibility, performance, advocacy and the potential of ‘playing the fool’ in all three. He is works full time as a lecturer (undergraduate and post-graduate) in design thinking at the Centre for Innovation, University of Bristol.
His time is currently divided between his role as researcher, lecturer and creative technologist. Whilst there are some distinctions in the aims and approaches within both these role, it is important that the skills and experiences acquired in one inform the others.
