Beyond Text is a collaborative international project concerned with bringing arts-based practice research into education.

Beyond Text is a collaborative international project concerned with bringing arts-based practice research into education.

The focus of the project is finding ways to support practitioners and researchers from all disciplines within universities and those professions and organisations beyond, to use the arts to conduct high quality research, assessment and evaluation through practice.  Although a significant number of cultural organizations are conducting practice-based research in the arts, it is rare to find this kind of research and reflection in other contexts; such as mainstream education, youth, social and health care, business, maths, science and engineering education.

We will be creating a Level 7 module (Masters & Doctoral) that equips participants in different fields to develop innovative arts-based approaches in research, assessment and evaluation.
