Human Creativity is fundamental to vibrant culture. The Creative industries in the U.K and throughout the world contribute to well-being, economic health, the expansion of human knowledge, and our understanding of what it means to be a human being. The University of Huddersfield produces internationally leading research in a number of areas related to Creativity. This research engages and develops a diverse portfolio of research methodologies that crosses a number of disciplines. Creativity research is fundamentally interdisciplinary, and this is reflected in the areas represented in this ASRI.
These Research areas include:
Researchers involved in these areas are embedded in established research partnerships throughout the world, and continue to contribute in important ways to the creative industries, cultural dialogues and our understanding of the creative impulse.
Public Engagement is a particularly strong feature of much of the work undertaken in this area, developing methodologies and approaches that draw upon the public’s high interest and participation in creative practice, and explore the uses of creativity to enhance human experiences, build community, and express individual and group understandings of the human condition.
