Research Week Event: Research Creation Showcase 2021

10:00 am - 06:00 pm

Address (Room): Online via Zoom


The Research Creation Showcase 2021 is in its 7th year of coinciding with the University’s Research Week celebration of all things research. The School of Humanities and Communication Arts is proud to participate in activities that are featured across the research landscape of the University. 2021 is the second year in which we have moved online for our event, featuring research outcomes from School staff and postgraduate students across Design, Music, Media Arts, and Humanities. As a showcase of creative practice and research, we feature an online exhibition of creative works including posters, films, photography, writing and music curated by a team drawn from the School of Humanities and Communication Arts. This event highlights our prolific maker/scholars and establishes the intrinsic link between making and knowing. A suite of artists talks, curators’ presentations, panels, performances and keynotes are drawn from both academics and our partners in the creative industries. Additionally, the top researchers in the School will be recognised at our School researcher awards presentation. Over much of 2021 our working lives have again been transformed. COVID 19 and climate change means living with a global health emergency, an environmental crisis and permanent uncertainty. Our collective patience has been sorely tested. As in 2020, in response to the need for greater physical isolation, many of us have found ways to retain and even re-make social connections. The creative and communication arts have been indispensable to mobilising a response to these most impactful events in the human narrative. These making and knowledge practices assist us in learning how to inhabit this troubled world and how to heal it in the building of safe places. Creative arts can inspire us to understand and to act in a timely fashion—with urgency and across our gendered, racial and bodily diversities. While the Research Creation Showcase 2021 offers compelling examples of creative practice, we can also learn from the presenters of the kinds of knowledges that are embedded in these works as an emphatic indication of the importance of the creative arts and research in a time of crisis.
