The Creative Collaboratorium in the School of Music at the University of Queensland was established in 2010 to provide a research focus that recognised the unique qualities of its music disciplines (Composition, Musicology, Music Education, Music Health and Wellbeing, Performance) and provide common ground for dialogue, collaboration, and the generation of new knowledge.

The research aims of the Creative Collaboratorium are:

  • To investigate the forms of creative thought and activity in creative collaborations and collaborative creativity in the disciplines of music
  • To identify the individual, social, cultural, and ecological factors that contribute to effective creative collaborations and collaborative creativity in music
  • To identify the outcomes (individual, social, cultural, disciplinary, inter-disciplinary) of effective creative collaborations and collaborative creativity in music
  • To investigate the relationships between creative collaborations and collaborative creativity in the disciplines of music and intersecting disciplines (such as arts, education, health)
