The 2nd M3P Symposium took place in conjunction with a TaPRA colloquium on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Documenting Performance at the University of Hull's School of Arts & New Media in Scarborough (UK) on 24 March 2012. The event was presented in collaboration with the University of Hull's Interdisciplinary and Collaborative Practices cluster.

The TaPRA working group on Documenting Performance provides a platform for mostly UK-based researchers to share their works-in-progress or finished projects with others working on similar studies and/or practical applications for documenting performance. The group is particularly keen to provide a platform for examples of different approaches to documenting performance, as observed and practiced in disciplines other than theatre and performance, such as architecture, digital humanities, visual arts, archeology, etc. It is therefore a natural partner for the M3P, particularly as the academic activities of the M3P Foundation are based primarily at the University of Hull's Scarborough Campus, specifically within the newly founded Media & Memory Research Institute headed by Dr Toni Sant.
