Dr Peter Wright will be project leader. He brings expertise to the project in terms of educational and arts-based research and draws on his experience as project director for the Australia Council for the Arts funded National Review of Education in Visual Arts, Craft, Design and Visual Communication where he directed a research team of seven across four universities Australia wide (P.R Wright, et al., 2006).
CI Wright has completed two evaluative projects on separate Big hART projects thereby having a relationship with Big hART and familiarity with Big hART practices. He will oversee and conduct fieldwork providing consistency across each of the research sites. CI Wright will coordinate the processes of data collection, conduct interviews with project participants-both past and present, and supervise data analyses through his experience with qualitative data analysis software (NVIVO), and coordinate report writing.
