SIMON MUNRO Yearning to Yarn: Artefact in Research
Exhibition dates November 2018 - May 2019
The ‘Yearning to Yarn: Artefact in Research’ exhibition at the University Gallery Museum (the Senta Taft-Hendry Museum), is an extension of a 2017 Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education Excellence (CEEHE) funded project, ‘Yearning to Yarn: Using Aboriginal ways of knowing to support clinical placement experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professional students’.
The exhibition features a creative display of research materials—drawing on the practice of artefact making into the process of capturing and analysing the qualitative research data—and Munro’s own beautifully crafted artefacts. As a key element of the research output for this project, the exhibition is documented, and forms part of the final research report.
