What transactions occur in interdisciplinary contexts that can result in the creation of new knowledge? In this forum talk, Jonathan Duckworth will consider this through the work of the Creative interventions, Art and Rehabilitative Technology lab (CiART), which focuses on projects that intersect art, design, science and health.

Jonathan will discuss over ten years of interdisciplinary research projects that bring together art and digital design with psychology, health sciences, and computer engineering in brain injury rehabilitation, and highlight how they have generated significant impact in other cultural and community sectors relevant to disability, performance and participation in the arts.

This forum took place on 4 September 2019. A recording of the livestream is available below.
