Here is where you can collaborate on the Centre for Creative Arts’ research projects, within three research clusters. These interdisciplinary clusters involve academics and postgraduate students in the Faculty and promote connections with other La Trobe researchers as well as with research partners nationally and internationally. The clusters provide a broad umbrella for intellectual and practical connection, stimulation and support to a number of activities such as focused research projects, reading groups and individual researchers.

The clusters are:

  • Making Public – this cluster will centre on making creative arts public, including research into creative arts, artistic creativity and aesthetics across cultures, time, and media.
  • Making sustainable places – this cluster focuses on research at the intersection of sustainability and place, including human-animal-object relations.
  • Emotions: embodiment and performativity – this cluster focuses on emotions and the intersection of creativity with embodiment and performativity.
