Practice-based Research

This cluster is interested in the question of what is knowledge-in-doing?

Cultural and Creative industries often operate in affective, ephemeral, relational and active manners: its unique knowledge lies in the production of cultural work, and such knowledge is difficult to translate into linear, rationalised and traditional manners. 

Working across Drama, Theatre, Film, Visual Art as well as other expressive forms, the Practice-based Research Cluster focuses on the development of practice research to expand knowledge about diverse practices within QMU and to support the reflection and development of practice as a research tool.
