About this book

This open access book provides a detailed example of arts-based knowledge translation from start to finish for any scholar interested in communicating research findings through art. Firmly grounded in the GeoHumanities, a field at the intersection of cultural geography and the arts, this book explores the theory and practice of research exhibitions. Commencing with an overview of arts in health and art-science collaborations, this book also explores the concept of ‘affective knowledge translation’. In doing so, it describes the creative co-production, staging, and evaluation of the Finding Home exhibition which toured Australia during 2021.  As a demonstration of the power of art to engage audiences, raise awareness of social issues, communicate lived experience, and extend the reach of cultural geographic research, this book is relevant to academics from any discipline who are keen to increase the societal impact of their work.

Reviews

Exhibiting Creative Geographies offers a timely, much-needed exploration of the intersections of creativity and community, so integral to many creative geographies. Candice Boyd provides an engaging account of collaborative research on young people’s lives in regional Australia, and the evolution of an exhibition to communicate this research and its findings. Boyd’s detailed description of exhibition-making weaves together conceptual concerns in relation to arts-based knowledge translation with a refreshing and important frankness around the practicalities and challenges of creating a research exhibition. — Harriet Hawkins, Professor of GeoHumanities, Royal Holloway, University of London
