Dr Keir Williams

About me

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 a senior lecturer in creative technologies and programme leader for the Digital Media BSc at the University of the West of England (UWE). His time is currently divided between his role as arts practitioner and academic. 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.
