Collaborative Poetics: Home

CP logo


In collaborative poetics artists, academic researchers and community participants work together as a ‘research collective’ to produce creative, social-scientifically informed texts. The method harnesses the skills and knowledge of all of these groups to produce innovative, creative pieces which enrich our understanding of social issues and the lived experience of these issues, helping communicate this new knowledge in engaging, accessible ways.

Collaborative poetics has been used to build critical resilience within communities, advocate for social justice, enhance knowledge/skill sharing between fields, and provide an innovative teaching tool.
