An Indigenous Australian project-based perspective on creativity and research dissemination.
Sandy O’Sullivan raises important issues relevant to academic researchers everywhere, such as what counts as legitimate research output and how should it be assessed. As she points out, non-text based outputs are now generally acceptable in the arts, but is there as case for these in other areas too, especially in Indigenous research contexts? And when it comes to justifying what counts, who should justify this and what criteria should be used to do so?
Don't forget to watch Sandy's video at the end of this article too.
Creative Scotland came into being in July 2010, created as a Non Departmental Public Body to replace and develop the functions of the former Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen. It is widely recognised as a model of public sector reform and is housed in a dynamic new resource base for the cultural sector in Scotland (Waverley Gate in Edinburgh) with offices in Glasgow.
