The SPAR Research Team

SPAR’s research team is a broadly multi-disciplinary group involving individuals from the University of Regina, the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Melbourne.
This research project involves a broadly multi-disciplinary research team. With a strong base in the arts, particularly community-based art practice, the team also involves researchers with other types of backgrounds suited to a broader understanding of artist networks and connections between artists and their communities. The team includes individuals from sociology, sustainability studies, economics, health, aboriginal studies, geography and cultural mapping as well as individuals with experience in a range of relevant research approaches (quantitative and qualitative methodology, ethics).

Margot HurlbertMargot Hurlbert (Associate Professor, Justice Studies / Sociology and Social Studies, University of Regina) is taking primary responsibility for structuring, planning and analyzing research results from the focus groups. She is also contributing to work on the surveys, case studies, and research ethics applications. Her background in law and government policy, social relations, aboriginal governance, environment, and sustainability studies, as well as her work with Saskatchewan communities and aboriginal peoples, are all important assets to this project.
