Research Fellow, ARC Linkage Project

Creative Barkly is the sixth consecutive ARC Linkage project of the innovative Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre (QCRC), which aims to develop and conduct research with strong artistic and social outcomes. This project will examine how the arts and cultural sector contributes towards regional development in remote Australia. It will map out the sector in the Barkly Region (Northern Territory), examine the role leading organisation Barkly Regional Arts plays in this sector, and deliver resources and recommendations that will inform current policies, strategies, and initiatives in the Barkly and beyond. The Barkly Region is one the largest remote regions in Australia and has a high Indigenous population (64.3% across the region, and up to 97% in some communities). The project is a partnership between QCRC, Barkly Regional Arts, Regional Development Australia NT, Batchelor Institute and Southern Cross University.

This is a fixed term (three years), part time (60%) position based at the South Bank campus

The Role: 
This Research Fellow is at the centre of the development, coordination, communication, management and research of an ARC Linkage project investigating the role of the arts and cultural sector in regional development in remote Australia. Creative Barkly is a three-year project, involving three higher education institutions (Griffith University, Batchelor Institute and Southern Cross University) and two key partners (Barkly Regional Arts and Regional Development Australia NT). The Research Fellow will work closely with the Research Team to map the arts and cultural sector in the Barkly Region and create a detailed picture of the current realities of how it operates in this remote context and its implications for regional development. The Research Fellow will also play a key role in examining the function that arts organisations, such as Barkly Regional Arts, play in sustaining the arts and culture sector and in developing the region in both social and economic terms. The Research Fellow will also assist the Research Team to explore the growth potential of the arts and cultural sector in the Barkly Region more broadly, and identify both grassroots actions and broader recommendations for organisations, policy makers and funders for how best to achieve this.

The Research Fellow for this project will be based in Brisbane, but spend considerable time in the Barkly Region (Northern Territory), and work closely with the Chief Investigators, other Australia-based researchers and research assistants, and the project partners to ensure the project is well organised, rigorous, transparent, ethical, efficient, and effective for all those involved. This involves keeping an overview at all times to ensure all strands of the project work in synergy towards its goals.
