Visual Arts Research Impact Enhancement Initiative
This project is funded by the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences at the Education University of Hong Kong, and enabled via a collaboration with the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. It is part of an initiative to share the research work of Visual Arts staff with a wider international audience, both within and beyond the realm of academia.
It is the first event in a collaboration that grew from a discourse with international colleagues about art practice as academic research, its nature and beneficial impact.
With an exciting and important international focus “The Art of Creative Research” showcases a range of works by academic staff from six influential Universities in the fields of art and design and art education.
The project explores practice-based research in a range of media, by fifteen staff from the Education University of Hong Kong and The National Institute of Education (NTU) Singapore, and from The Arts University Bournemouth, the Royal College of Art, Homerton College (University of Cambridge), and University College London, in the UK.
This website supports the physical exhibition, providing an informative collection of interviews with the exhibitors and other related project information and links.
The exhibition showcases and celebrates individual creative works, in a range of media, and additionally explores the impact that this creative practice has on enhancing the value of the student experience, on building connections between educational institutions, the creative industries, and local communities. The exhibitors share their work and aspects of their simultaneous multi-identities as Artists, Designers, Academic Researchers, Scholars, Educators and Teachers.
