Research is central to a University's status and in 2007 the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Education moved to take a strategic approach by adopting a theme of "Creative Communities". The theme was a broad area of research which collected together a series of research programs in the faculty in order to have a broad impact on the fields of education and creative enterprises. This inclusive theme of Creative Communities combines a commitment to performance, education and community partnerships in the arts and cultural industries, with a wider understanding of emerging technologies, institutions and audiences. The three research foci related to this theme are global transformations, knowledge management and creative performance.
