Arts.Creativity.Education research group

This Faculty Research Group is concerned with critical theory and practice in creativity, arts based methods, and arts education across early childhood, primary, secondary, tertiary, and public pedagogical contexts. Theoretical underpinnings of the group include sociocultural perspectives, practice-led-research, and critical theory. Methodologically the group draws on a variety of research methodologies from both quantitative and qualitative paradigms, including narrative inquiry, performance and other ethnography, a/r/tography, historical research and phenomenology.


Out research group is currently collaborating with a range of national and international colleagues and groups from New Zealand, Canada, the UK, Europe, and the USA amongst others. We are a founding member of the Australian Arts Based Education Research network, a consortium of scholars and practitioners conducting quarterly symposia on topics of interest to the network. We welcome proposals for new research collaborations, and maintain a dynamic visiting scholar program.
