Creative Education Research Hub

The Creative Education Research Hub celebrates a reorientation in our past Curtin University, School of Education research culture from being strongly entrenched in traditional research methods to encompass more contemporary forms where research collaborators use the Arts to reach new audiences.

Method Meets Art

Arts-based research:A set of methodological tools used by qualitative researchers across the disciplines during all phases of social research, including data collection, analysis, interpretation, and representation. These emerging tools adapt the tenets of the creative arts in order to address social research questions in holistic and engaged ways in which theory and practice are intertwined”. 
Leavy, P. (2009). Method Meets Art: Arts-Based Research Practice. Pp.2-3

There has been a shift in recent decades towards academics across Australia undertaking and/or presenting their research in Arts-based formats which are exciting, innovative and reflective of the dynamic evolution of research culture internationally.

The Curtin University School of Education aims to have a leading presence in this space and our Creative Education Research Hub provides a vehicle for Arts-based education research advocacy and collaboration within the disciplines of visual arts and performance/theatre work.
