The Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research (GCCAR) is a major new multi-campus Research Centre established to build Griffith’s reputation as a national leader in research across all creative disciplines. 

The Centre complements Griffith’s long-established Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre (QCRC) and its scope includes visual arts, design, film, animation, games design and creative writing. 

The central activity of the Centre is the exploration of new creative modes, images and forms for understanding contemporary experience through the expanding field of practice-based research in the creative arts. 

An important role of the Centre is to facilitate, encourage and co-ordinate multi-disciplinary interaction: between the various creative disciplines; and with other disciplines, Institutes and Centres within the Arts, Education and Law (AEL) group, the University, and more widely.
