Thinking of taking on a practice-led research higher degree? Our annual education feature takes a close look at creative research in performance, visual arts, music and film. Some of the challenges that faced creative degrees at their inception are still with us despite evidence of many successful outcomes. The relationship between the artwork and the exegesis seems problematic, largely to do with the kind of writing expected. Other issues include the criteria for assessment, the choice of assessors, the value and visibility of the finished work, and just what the completed degree signals—professional development or scholarly achievement, or an important nexus of both? What is singularly evident is a diversity of programs with quite different aims which doubtless make assessment and shared standards difficult to achieve—let alone choosing where to enrol. In media arts and dance, we address progress and drawbacks in the vital practical teaching of these forms. Elsewhere we focus on developments in regional arts in Launceston, Goolwa and Alice Springs. And we welcome writers new to the pages of RealTime—Astrid Francis in Perth, Kelly-Lee Hickey in Alice Springs, Catherine McKinnon in Wollongong and Kathryn Kelly in Brisbane. The photograph above is of Aggregate by Lachlan Petras, winner of the Dr Harold Schenberg Art Prize in the 2012 HATCHED National Graduate Show, an exemplar of media/sculpture hybridity.
