Mission Statement

The Australian Music and Art Research Group fosters scholarly and practical research into the intersections between music and visual culture, including – but not limited to – the study of music iconography and the development of new creative work.

Its aims are to promote studies in inter-arts and cross-cultural dialogue; to provide a framework (as the Australian National Centre and Working Group of Association RIdIM) for the interpretation and cataloguing of visual sources referring to music, dance, theatre and opera; and to develop and support a network of researchers and creative practitioners through the organisation of workshops and scholarly meetings etc.

Based in Australia at the University of Tasmania, the activities of the Music and Art Research Group have a national focus, but it welcomes communication and involvement from scholars, musicians and artists from across the world.
