Art as Voice responded to the need for collaborative, interdisciplinary research that investigates both explicit (articulated) and implicit (embodied, performed) Indigenous epistemologies in and through research about arts and practiceQbased research. Drawing on an interdisciplinary and intercultural team with specialisms in theatre and film-making, visual arts, ethnomusicology, anthropology, education and archives, research produced knowledge about the practices and perspectives of Indigenous arts researchers and artists-as-researchers (traditional and contemporary, across music, dance, visual, theatre, literary, oral).
