Terms & Conditions
Our contact email address for comments, complaints, and compliments is provided in our contact details.
Our business is organising and running events such as the International Creative Research Methods Conference, and academic and research writing retreats.
A place at one of our events is secured by payment, which must be made via this website, by card or by bank transfer. We cannot accept cheques. You have the right to cancel and receive a full refund within 15 days of making payment, including the day that payment is made. After that date no refunds will be available. You may transfer your place to another person and if you do so, you must notify us of that person’s name and email address.
Invoice payment terms are 30 days from date of invoice. If a 30-day invoice is not paid within 60 days, we will cancel the invoice, issue a credit note, and the place at the event will no longer be reserved for you. It is your responsibility to ensure that the invoice for your place is paid within this time frame.
How do you set the prices?
We work to keep prices as low as possible while making the events financially viable.
Are your prices negotiable?
Can you invoice my organisation for payment?
No, we can only take payment by card or bank transfer, in advance. This is because payment for invoices often needs to be chased up, sometimes via outsourced suppliers of invoice management with no named person to contact, and this can be very time consuming. We are a small organisation and we do not have enough person-power to do this unpaid work. Also we cannot afford the risk of invoices going unpaid.
Can I book Helen Kara to speak at or run an event at my organisation?
Yes, subject to her availability; she is usually booked up several months ahead. Send us an email saying what you want and when, and someone will get back to you, usually within five working days.
"Researchers who use creative methods are at risk of finding ways to express themselves, learn, and have fun." (Kara 2020:237)
We did it!
Enormous thanks to all who came to our conference, which was a stunning success. Check back here again soon for links to recordings of the hybrid keynote sessions.
We are STILL hugely grateful to our sponsors for helping us to make a brilliant couple of days:
And we're doing it again!
This year's conference was such a fabulous event that we have already decided to run it again next year. It will be on 9-10 September 2024, and we will be returning to The Studio in Manchester - please save the date!
