Personal profile

Research Interests

John is interested in how art and design practice operates and can enhance lives in the community.

His diverse interests in this area are united by a concern with how dialogue may function as a framework for both practice and meaning-making in the arts.

His work has investigated questions such as:
How socially engaged art can adapt social science frameworks and methods.
How counselling psychology perspectives can inform and enhance the practice and ethics of socially engaged art practice.
How conversation and text can interact in the performance of knowledge in research.
How artistic written dialogues can function as a research method.
How informal co-participatory dialogues can form research communities of interest and support.
How pragmatic linguistic approaches can offer alternative frameworks of meaning-making in art and design education.
