Creativity on display at ECU Research Week 2016

Monday, 05 September 2016


ECU Research Week, our annual showcase of all things research, has an exciting program of events this September. ECU’s Mount Lawley campus will play host to a number of sessions focusing on research in the Creative Arts and Education, as well as presentations on postgraduate research degree opportunities.

The week will kick off with the WAAPA Music Research Showcase, featuring research projects by the staff and students at the academy, as well as poster presentations from Honours, Masters and PhD students. Monday evening will see the School of Education presenting their annual event, Engaging Minds, Engaging Communities, with an opening address by the Commissioner for Children and Young People WA, Colin Pettit.

If you’re battling writers’ block, don’t miss out on The Monster Party, as Dr Cecily Scutt from the Graduate Research School takes you through naming and taming your inner writing monsters.

The Centre for Research in Entertainment, Arts, Technology, Education & Communications (CREATEC) will be hosting two sessions: A panel discussion on Is your research really research? looks at the questions surrounding research in the creative arts. Michael Hopkin, Environment + Energy editor for The Conversation, will then share how you can share your research with a wider audience in the talk, 800 Words for 80,000 Hits.

Koorda Katitjin – Lessons in Love focuses on positive family functioning and what can be learnt from the traditional Nyoongar family system.

Thursday will see a number of exciting events, including: A Place by the HeA/R/Th, which looksat several projects that span the arts and health areas; Get Mocapped! promises to take participants through the process of motion capture; and in the evening, a joint session between ECU and the Perth Observatory with the Journey Out Into The Universe (seminar): An Introduction to Astronomy.

The week will close with the WAAPA Research Showcase on Friday, and a Postgraduate Information Morning Tea on Saturday for anyone considering doing research at ECU.

Look out for the Espresso Self 2016 exhibition in the lead-up to ECU Research Week at Spectrum Project Space, and throughout the week, the Journey Out Into The Universe exhibition in the Building 8 Library Breathing Space.
