For more information, contact the Creative Industries Higher Degree Research Office –ci.hdr@qut.edu.au. A formal registration process will be released shortly but in the meantime, please send widely through your networks!

PLEASE DISSEMINATE WIDELY – I attended her CT masterclass in Melbourne in 2015, it was wonderful… well worth attending, if you can, to spend time with this very kind and smart qualitative research guru!

P.S. If you are inter-state or overseas, please considering making a week of it in Brisbane – we will also be running a free one day symposium in between workshops, primarily for PhD students on the Thursday – Kathy will be doing a keynote there – so add that to your trip planning! Thursday Symposium – Creative Expression: Methods and practices from art, design and communication research (very, very early stages of planning!). 

Warm regards, Evonne
