This paper considers the poetics of creativity in the task of research praxis. There is a considerable global move to mine the potential of innovation in the worldwide stakes for competitive advantage. This is particularly evident in the university sector where the fundamental role of academics is to engage with the personal, social, cultural and political realm to respond to and 'produce' knowledge for 21st century global economies. Creative knowledge lies at the heart of the creative arts and design sector: and that is where the responsibility for 'knowledge leadership' lies. The paper focuses on how creative thinkers, makers, researchers, postgraduate candidates can innovate by creating new maps for these new social and political spaces. It draws from a range of creative research projects undertaken over the past few years in my academic work to investigate what the 'poetics' of such knowledge might be, and how a 'poetics' might be attained. The overall task here is to open up the ethos of creative praxis for a broader audience in academic and public worlds. [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
