Nina Williams is a lecturer in human geography at the University of Bristol and a research associate on the Urban ID project. Her interests are in theorisations of aesthetics and creativity, particularly developed through the philosophies of Felix Guattari, Gilles Deleuze, and Henri Bergson. She uses this conceptual starting point to experiment with methodological techniques for exploring urban living, mobility, art and creativity. Through her work she has designed walking events using digital technologies to document urban environments, facilitated collaborative workshops to share knowledges, and curated exhibitions to foster public engagement with research. On the Urban ID project she has remained committed to the use of creative and collaborative methodological practices for empowering citizens to diagnose and respond to what they feel are the key challenges affected them in their areas.
