This is the blog for a research project called Community Uses of Co-Creative Media based in the Creative Industries Faculty at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. We have a Twitter account too.

The project has been funded by the Australian Research Council under its Linkages with industry scheme. It uses Digital Storytelling and similar co-creative media production methods to demonstrate how to improve the coordination of sustainable participation and innovation in digital content creation across the Australian community arts, community broadcasting and Indigenous media systems.
