Practice and research interests

I like to consider the experience of change and uncertainty as the fingerprint of curiousity.

To experience anything is to participate in it, and to participate is both to mould and to encounter (Heron and Reason 1997).

(Arts) Practice based inquiry

The reflective practitioner - attitudes of immersion, reflection and critical analysis in the creative arts.

(Supervision, pedagogy, companioning of postgraduate research, University of Melbourne and MIECAT)
