This interactive 1-day session will serve as an introduction to arts-based qualitative research. Arts-based methods involve the use of artistic processes such as photography, collaging, and video-making as the mode of inquiry. Arts-based methods have been employed with many diverse communities, as these methods afford communities accessible modalities through which to engage with complicated subject matter. Students will get an overview of different arts-based methods and how they have been employed in research inquiry. Students will have opportunities to reflect on their own interest in these creative modalities. Students will then be provided an opportunity to collectively engage with one method of arts-based inquiry to explore the utility of these approaches in their work.
