At the last MAKING FUTURES conference in 2015 we presented our project JUNK: Rubbish-to-Gold as a project yet to be delivered and we talked about the complexities of thinking through the project and the much more challenging aspects of project management. Now we are back after the project was delivered, jewellery transformed, the website launched and it is time to reflect, disseminate and critique. We explore how we as arts practitioners, educators and makers devise, develop, construct, display, perform and disseminate a live, collaborative, action-based research project, with multiple facets, intentions, layers and potential outcomes.
