CREATEC collaborates with the community, government and industry to provide innovative research solutions and knowledge transfer that helps solve real-world problems. The centre is supported by both the School of Arts and Humanities and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), and actively supports staff and postgraduate students in applying for research grants.

CREATEC also holds weekly research seminars and three-day writing intensive retreats to facilitate and enable our researchers to discuss, develop and increase their research outputs. The focus is collaborative research through seven themed research groups.

The current CREATEC Director is Professor Trevor Cullen.


CREATEC is currently involved in a wide range of text-based, archival and practice-led research within and across its research groups. Individuals and groups are undertaking this research, often in collaboration with other groups and partners in industry, community and government. CREATEC is actively seeking new opportunities and welcomes approaches by parties interested in developing new collaborations.
