Our vision is to achieve socio-ecological justice by seeking to identify and co-create inclusive pathways for all Australians to embrace more-than-human futures grounded in Indigenous teachings of caring for Country.
We will forge a transdisciplinary collective of Creative Industries academics and partners
to lead a proactive, creative response to the unfolding planetary ecocide.
Our research will question and seek to catalyse the urgent social changes required to mitigate and reverse collapsing ecological systems, and assure justice for all species.
We will achieve this through a focus on innovative, transdisciplinary research projects, experimental artworks, designs, critiques, and socially engaged actions deeply informed by the environmental humanities, ecological justice studies, Indigenous perspectives and decolonial theory.
Learn from and be guided by Indigenous Australians to foster and communicate a deeper understanding of their cosmologies, ontologies, and epistemologies.
Investigate how the sustenance and prosperity of humans and more-than-humans are profoundly interdependent within the ‘nature-technology continuum.
Engage art, communication and design to catalyse the far-reaching social changes required to mitigate and adapt to the crippling impacts of the planetary ecocide.
Bring together senior to early academics and HDR candidates, engage in critical HASS scholarship, and co-author NTROs and TROs in an atmosphere of deep learning, nurturing, and mentorship.
The group’s focus across design and creative practice is strengthened by the exploration of Indigenous concepts such as care for and stewardship of Country.
The group contains some of the strongest performers in Architecture and Design Practice and Management.
Our group comprises a diverse mix of practice-led scholars and artists internationally renowned for their innovative, creative and ecological contributions to creative industries and broader societal concerns.
