The groundbreaking text introduces an emerging and rapidly growing field with a dynamic collection of illustrative articles featuring artists, leading academics, health researchers, nurse educators, physicians, educators, environmentalists and others who actively use the creative arts in interdisciplinary practice in cutting edged research and in methodologies for health, hope and change. Readers will learn how the creative arts can offer unique opportunities to embody and re-illuminate the human story, stage human vulnerability, foster citizenship and give voice to narratives of human experience.
At over 400 pages, this is a rich and multifaceted collection of articles and chapters about the creative arts in research and action, an accessible yet highly informative text that enlightens the reader about the inquiries and the processes while offering first hand insights into approaches, stories of the work in practice, how to method based exercises and lists of comprehensive references.
"Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice, Inquiries for Hope and Change" is a contemporary research collection that features methods that are participative, communal, active and experiential. It speaks of approaches that actively re-illuminate lived experiences and foster and encourage deep and multi-sensory communication and embodied forms of expression with elements visual, emotional, physical and spiritual. In this book, we bring together a field that stresses the vital importance of creativity and the human story, a body of work that seeks to help give voice to the silenced, the oppressed and the marginalized, narrative accounts of personal transformation that honour creative expression as fundamental and at the very source of human meaning and purpose. We invite you to journey through these articles and share in accounts of the creative arts in interdisciplinary practice for hope and change"Editor, Cheryl McLean, Publisher IJCAIP Journal.
