This edited collection reflects the relevance and quality of current work by the scholars and graduate students in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Education at Central Queensland University.

Its inclusive theme of 'Creative Communities' combines a commitment to performance, education and community partnerships in the arts and cultural industries, with a wider understanding of emerging technologies, institutions and audiences.

Under this rubric, three major domains of transdisciplinary research are addressed: global transformations, knowledge management and creative performance.

Here, once more, is the evidence of the research culture of a vigorous academic community of practice at work on significant contemporary and historical issues.
