With a stress placed on qualitative research, there is a new and exciting vision for diversity and inclusion, including numerous possibilities emerging for arts research and practice.

Working with Southampton and Cambridge Universities, and across international research settings, new publications will be announced in 2015 on topics including: researching hard to reach groups and using interchangeable research methods in social sciences research and arts research.

RAS and its associated research has pioneered cross disciplinary research and intercultural understandings of the contexts of transformative arts education within the field of inclusive arts research through various publications.
