Artfulness in ART

Modern Abstract Art

Artfulness in ART

We have published two special issues of Action Research journal that looks at, and gives examples of, how ARTists use the creative arts. This is of value to ARTista (and authors) who look at how they and we, as well as communities and institutions, can bring the artistic side into ART and thereby support transformations. These articles also explore how paying attention to emotions and artfulness - often excluded in conventional research - brings a vital and vibrant dimension to ART.
