            The EVA London Research Workshop is one of the more unique elements of our Conference that we have been keen to develop over many years. Often Postgraduate Students, at Masters or PhD level, or Unaffiliated Early Career Artists may feel excluded from prestigious conferences until their research is completed and they can submit a full paper proposal. However, over many years, EVA London has recognised the importance of offering an almost unique opportunity to submit projects that can be truly described as ‘Work in Progress’. With an audience of International Academics and acknowledged experts in a field, the Research Workshop presentations have often lead to very positive interest and support, and sometimes to future collaborations. Others return to EVA London a year or two later with a completed piece of Research and a successful Full Conference Proposal. In previous years the presentations have been very popular with all of our delegates and we are delighted to include all of the presentations as part of our mainstream July 2021 Online conference. Although we will once again miss some of the informal networking opportunities, we have, as always, selected an exciting, ground breaking and quite eclectic group of RW delegates. We hope that by publishing their papers here, either grouped together, or individually published, some of you will be keen to contact our RW authors, to discuss and develop their ideas further.
