The Creative Regions Lab aims to redefine creative activity in regional Australia to create regional futures. We are a teaching and research hub that drives the development of creative enterprises and activities in regional Australia.
Our core function is to conduct research, identify themes, invent industries, direct, coordinate,respond, and promote all projects nationally and internationally.
We operate through projects that combine the culture of regional creativity and innovation with the invention of new productivity possibilities.

The data gathered in this project will provide a range of oral history material and artefacts for, the playwrights (in order to be inspired to write plays initiated from engaging with the data) and, for curators and archivists (in order to create a historical record of people's lived experiences of Mayday Hills). The researchers hope to use both the data generated from the initial data collection phase of the project as well as critically reflect on the ways in which playwrights, and others who access the material, interpret and represent the same data.
