Jessica Bowles (UK) is a Principal Lecturer at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in the UK, where she leads an M.A. in Creative Producing as well as a number of partnership projects for the School. Her educational and research practice is about creating and promoting live and virtual teaching and learning models for performance training, mostly celebrating the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of performance-making. Since 2008, she has been collaborating with Prof. Bob Shiel of the Bartlett School of Architecture UCL, and this has developed into new strand of collaborative research between making, performance and 3D scanning, in collaboration with SHUNT, and ScanLAB projects. Since 2010, she has been on the Board of C4CC, a University of London initiative to bring leading and innovative researchers from London’s universities together with creative industry freelancers, small businesses, and students. In 2013, she completed an AHRC-funded Creativeworks project with Battersea Arts Centre, looking at Scratch as a co-creative model and its potential for development online, and is currently working with colleagues at the Amsterdam Theatreschool (NL) on a symposium examining the role of Creative Producers.
