Cafe Psychologique presents: Can Art Be Research?

‘Arts-based research’ covers a range of methods which use the arts as a tool for data collection, analysis and/or communication. This could be anything from asking participants to document their lives through photographs, to creating poems and plays from interview transcripts. Arts-based research is creative, innovative, exciting and challenging. It has the potential to change, not just how we represent the world, but how we think about the world. It can also challenge academics’ status as the only true owners/creators of this knowledge. In this café, Helen Johnson will use her research in this area to explore such widespread topics as: 

How can art create/represent knowledge?
What does it mean to be creative as an artist and a researcher?
How can the arts impact individual and collective wellbeing?

Helen Johnson is a Senior Psychology Lecturer at the University of Brighton. She has been a social science researcher for almost ten years. Helen is also a performance poet, poetry educator and events organiser, and runs poetry stages at Glastonbury and Elderflower Fields Festivals. In recent years, she has put these roles together to develop her own method of arts-based research, ‘collaborative poetics.’ Find out more here:
