A culture defines itself by the stories it tells. In the School of Communication and Creative Industries, we are committed to storytelling. As actors, animators, artists, curators, communication designers, filmmakers, performers, sound designers, theatre makers and television producers; and as communicators across advertising, journalism and public relations, we explore storytelling as a multitude of possibilities in an ever-changing cultural and technological landscape.
The SCCI coordinates several platforms to support the creation and dissemination of new research. Just some of these include:
Acknowledging the culture and insight of Indigenous Australians, research across the SCCI is grounded in Charles Sturt University’s ethos described by the Wiradjuri phrase, ‘Yindyamarra Winhanganha’ (‘the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in’). Derived from this ethos, our researchers make contributions from their unique practical backgrounds to the three interdisciplinary research spheres at the heart of Charles Sturt University’s research narrative: Resilient People, Flourishing Communities, and Sustainable Environments.
