We investigate the transformative capacities of art to interpret and affect communities in the age of rapid urbanisation and globalisation through practice-led research.
CAST values the qualities art brings to research in the university context and its contribution to 21st century knowledge.
The Centre has three linked research program areas:
- Transformations: examines the capacity for art to interpret, critique and improve individual and community life through creative practice in a social context.
- Environments: explores intersections between art, urban life, infrastructure, environment and sustainability.
- Dialogues: investigates culture porosity and the development of new insights and innovation through artistic engagement across diverse cultural and social environments.
You are invited to apply to become a member of CAST if your research, in full or in part, aligns with one or more of the Centre's focus areas.
University supported research will be increasingly focused through research centres in the future. As a member you are aligned with RMIT University's School of Art's research Centre with supervision, research and funding implications and benefits into the future.
