Part 3 (methodology) is live!

Part 3 (methodology) is live!

The third instalment of Raising Creativity is now live! This part outlines art-based research methodology and how I’ve adapted it specifically in my dissertation.

.       Art-based research “plays by rules that differ from those applied to more conventional research” (Barone & Eisner, 1997, p. 101). As such—and although it has been in legitimate academic use for roughly twenty years—I consistently find it necessary to explain, justify, and defend this kind of research. Originally when my work was still in the planning stages, I thought I would simply blog about my method instead of putting together a video so as not to disturb the flow of the series (if anything, I saw this piece as existing akin to a bonus feature on a DVD), however it soon became clear that that would not happen. As a beginning art-based researcher, I myself looked and longed for an explanatory video that could succinctly present the basic tenets and advantages to this kind of work, but to no avail. Searching “arts-informed research” or “a/r/tography” will pull up a few matching titles in YouTube, however none of the video options are very clear and to the point. I felt strongly that a video describing art-based research needed to exist to align with my values of accessibility and dissemination. I think I was able to work it so that it still offers a compelling narrative and various cinematic and dramatic devices to keep the audience engaged. The final result is below!
