iNTRoDuCTioN To The EXHibiTioN
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 exhibition features practice-based research in a range of media, by fifteen staff from The Education University of Hong Kong, The National Institute of Education (NTU), Singapore and from The Arts University Bournemouth, the Royal College of Art, Cambridge University, and University College London, in the UK.
It is the first event in a collaboration that grew from a discourse about art practice as academic research, its nature and beneficial impact. 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, and Educators/Teachers.
