What makes us different

Communication practices

Through creative and critical communication approaches, we have a unique responsibility to recognise the effect of our actions on others and our planet as well as celebrate differences in experience, values and perspectives.

Critical Storytelling

The School recognises the urgent need for inclusive and relevant storytelling to discover new and meaningful ways to experience our world today. We explore the emergence of new technologies for telling stories, such as VR, AR and mobile platforms, designing and generating experiences that communicate human, nonhuman and more-than-human perspectives and realities.

Sound is everywhere and listening permeates all areas of art and design practice, from the physical to the virtual, across cultures and fictions, and from machines to the oceanic. In the School of Communication, we explore the role and possibilities of working with sound across disciplines by moving outside the conventional areas of sound design, all contextualised through real-world outcomes with world-leading partners, focussing on creating space to listen with others.

We are inspired by practices of communication that are culturally informed and historically aware, that encourage dialogue and ways of working with others that embrace collaborative practices. We initiate conversations through building relationships, potentially leading to unexpected societal interactions, creating mutual exchanges of ideas and shared understandings.

We explore how communication practices can help better understand and positively change the terms and narratives of contemporary communication.
