Library Lounges: Arts-Based Research: What is that?

For consideration

"The systematic use of the artistic process, the actual making of artistic expressions in all of the different forms of the arts, as a primary way of understanding and examining experience by both researchers and the people that they involve in their studies. These inquiries are distinguished from research activities where the arts may play a significant role but are essentially used as data for investigations that take place within academic disciplines that utilize more traditional scientific, verbal, and mathematic descriptions and analyses of phenomena." - Handbook of the Arts in Qualitative Research perspectives, methodologies, examples, and issues (McNiff, 2008, p.29).
