Arts-based Research Studio’s new Ning Network

As of Fall 2012 the Arts-based Research Studio is hosting a Ning network. Please join us at

We are hoping this will be a more interactive forum for anyone interested in art in/as research/practice. Please join the network, add your own photos or other media, write and share a blog post, or get a discussion going in the forum.
Anything else you’d like to see in an ABR network? Let us know by commenting  or by sending us a message.

From 2008 – 2012, the Arts-Based Research Studio maintained a blog and site here on wordpress. This site will remain as ABR Studio’s history.
Thanks and welcome!
