The Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre (QCRC) undertakes leading-edge research that tackles the complex and multi-faceted role that music plays in contemporary society. To do this, we collaborate with national and international partners and stakeholders to cultivate projects that are creative and imaginative in content and design, interdisciplinary in nature, and dedicated to addressing the pressing needs of our time. The research outcomes from QCRC cater to diverse audiences across the community, music industry and higher education sector and are published and presented across a wide range of platforms to achieve far-reaching impact. In addition, QCRC curates a vibrant program of yearly events that bring together research with learning and teaching and community engagement.
The QCRC's five focus areas provide diverse yet complimentary lenses through which our researchers explore the multi-faceted role that music plays, and offer different viewpoints on how music can address the key issues of our time. The areas of Artistic Research in Music, Music and Communities, Music learning and teaching, Music and Technology and Music, Health and Wellbeing offer the opportunity to understand how music can be an agent for social change, influence health, create new teaching opportunities and create exciting new ways to interact with the world around us.
