Back to search results

Focusing on innovative, creative strategies for engagement with mental health consumers and broader communities, as well as new qualitative approaches to Mental Health and Wellbeing research, this PhD place aligns with UNSW's Anxiety festival, which spans experimental arts and evidence-based mental health research. Proposals will be considered from applicants with arts, interactive media, social media, data visualization, curatorial studies, design, or mental health specialisations. Applicants must outline an innovative transdisciplinary method of knowledge generation or exchange and engagement. Projects may include practice-based, experimental and theoretical components. Of particular interest are approaches grounded in citizen science, phenomenology, and/or the use of 3D immersive/virtual reality environments.
