Title: Arts as Research: Using the Arts for Research Communication in Healthcare

Date: October 12, 2022 @7:30PM


Arts as Research is a series of 2 sessions (1 Fall, 1 Winter) exploring arts-based research methodologies and their value in healthcare.

Arts-based research (ABR) is the use of artistic practice, such as theatre or photography, as a means to collect, analyze, and communicate research (Leavy, 2015). Sessions will offer an introduction to ABR and illustrate how it has been used for research communication, development of policy, social engagement, pedagogy, and reflective practice. Join us to imagine how you can share your research through art.

Learning goals:

  • Experiment creatively with artistic practices.
  • Learn and engage with the process of creating arts-based research.
  • Identify how the arts can be used for advocacy, research communication, reflection, and dialogue.
  • Define arts-based research and identify its role within the health humanities and healthcare.
