What is this site?

This site has been developed by the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT University in collaboration with ADAPT-r and a number of Australian universities. The full list of partners is provided on the front page.

The site is intended to provide a location for the collection and curation of research artefacts relating to creative practice research, a community space within which researchers/practitioners can share their thinking, their projects and their ideas and a space within which to provide open courses for those interested in creative practice research.
