The Ethics of Innovation and Creative Practice Research


We invite you to submit a proposal for an edited book The Ethics of Innovation and Creative Practice Research that addresses the “ethical” issues for contemporary artists, designers and performers working in the academy and beyond. The edited book aims to contribute to the robust discussion around the relationship between ethics and creative practice research.
