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).

Applying qualitative as well as quantitative mapping approaches she is responsible for creating the interactive cultural mapping materials on our website.
