Research-Creation and Social Justice


The Research-Creation + Social Justice CoLABoratory (CoLAB) is a hub for research-creation at the University of Alberta

The Research-Creation and Social Justice CoLABoratory brings together studios, labs, and individual researchers from across the University of Alberta’s many faculties to support robust, interdisciplinary and collaborative research-creation practices. We host events, share resources, and meet monthly to discuss texts or engage in hands-on workshops. The cluster’s 2016-2019 research theme is “art(s) and the anthropocene.” If you are interested in affiliating with the CoLAB or attending any of our sessions please do not hesitate to contact us.
