Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research (GCCAR)

Visual digital artist from Queensland College of Art

Griffith University

The Centre explores new creative modes, images and forms for understanding contemporary experience through the expanding field of practice-based research in the creative arts. The Centre encompasses fields such as visual arts, design, film, animation, games design and creative writing, and complements Griffith’s Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre (QCRC), which focuses on music. An important role of GCCAR is to facilitate, encourage and co-ordinate multi-disciplinary interaction between the various creative disciplines, with other disciplines, institutes and centres within Griffith University, and more widely.
