Increasingly, health researchers are embracing arts-based inquiry. Creative practices can be conceived as supportive interventions for people with chronic illnesses and/or they may assist with data collection and dissemination. Until June 2011, I co-facilitated the Creative Practices for People with Cancer (CP4PC) Research Group, which was supported by the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF). I continue to be involved with this Group from a distance.
My interests in creative practices have also been shared in a publication involving poetic transcription, as well as others in the area of photovoice. It is in this domain of "creative practices" that my personal interests in writing, fibre arts and photography begin to intersect with my research.
