Arts Research

Our research asks these questions: What forces shape our lives? What makes for a rich and meaningful existence? How can we change things for the better?


Our research addresses important local and global issues, advancing our understanding of the world. We aim for excellence in innovative, creative, scholarly research.


Our Focus Program Initiative invests in areas of research excellence to accelerate areas of research priority.


Our projects with government, organisations, communities and industry benefit both our partners and the world around us. Our research makes a difference.
