All the best,


Centre for Creative Arts Master Class

Date: October 26
Times: 10am â 4.30 pm

Professor Paul Carter, Deakin University


Creative Arts practices are now accepted academic pursuits. With this form of research come new challenges for masters and PhD students. The difficulty we face is how to merge these creative projects with the expectations of academia. With support from the Centre for Creative Arts (La Trobe), Paper Tigers as its postgraduate initiative seeks postgraduates students interested in creative research, to participate in a workshop led by Professor Paul Carter (Deakin University). The aim of the MASTERCLASS is to pinpoint issues relating to how we think through creative practices in a university environment.

Prof Paul Carter is an internationally acclaimed artist and academic. He is currently Deputy Director of the Centre for Memory, Imagination and Invention at Deakin University. Paul has theorised creative research practice and mentors in this area. His research interests include: the poetics of place-making, public space design and the application of creative research to community renewal, strategic planning and policy formation. In 2004 he published âMaterial Thinking,â which became a seminal book on the theory and practice of creative research.In 2008 he followed this up with Dark Writing: performance, geography, design, which extends creative research theory and practice into the domain of planning.
