During this phase of the ‘On the Edge’ programme, Anne Douglas was able to further develop research into drawing as experiential knowing, while being a research associate of the ‘Knowing from Inside’ project. The focus of this project was the practices of inquiry in the human sciences and the forms of knowledge to which they give rise. Its fundamental premise was that knowledge grows from our practical and observational engagement with beings and things around us. Knowledge comes from thinking with, from and through beings and things, not just about them. The project aimed to show how research underpinned by this premise could make a difference to the sustainability of environmental relations and to the well-being that depends on it. This project was led by Aberdeen University and funded by the European Research Council. (http://www.abdn.ac.uk/research/kfi/)
