RESEARCH AND THE ARTS
Creative Arts in Education and Therapy: Eastern, Western and Global Perspectives
International open access journal of IACAET (International Association of Creative Arts in Education and Therapy)
Following the winter issue of 2021 Cooperation across Artistic Disciplines and World Cultures, We are calling for contributions to the 2022 winter issue with a focus on interdisciplinary approaches to Research and the Arts. We cordially invite authors to contribute papers to CAET in order to share your perspectives among colleagues in the East, West, and the rest of the world. Artistic formats are supported together with scholarly writing. Submitted manuscripts should contain 4,000-6,000 words and make a direct effort to include China/Asia in their content. We also encourage submissions of artworks related to our topics and fields. Full submission guidelines can be found at the CAET website http://caet.inspirees.com/for-authors/. Inquiries regarding journal policy, manuscript preparation, and other such general topics should be sent to the CAET editorial office: firstname.lastname@example.org. IACAET has recently launched a new Global Webinar series ‘Research and the Arts’. This call for papers on Research and the Arts is an integral component towards advancing and serving the fields of creative arts in education, therapy, health, and community. At the very core of these fields of inquiry is the place that the arts have in a variety of research approaches and methodologies to further our understanding of complex issues we face in society today. This approach is in line with our mission at the International Association for Creative Arts in Education and Therapy (IACAET), and our belief that the aesthetic and creative use of the arts, integrated with body-mind-spirit, is essential for individual and collective well-being, social change and the advancement of humanity and our planet. This edition will present cutting-edge research ideas, projects, and methodologies that are taking place in our world today and will highlight the opportunities and challenges they encompass. In line with our webinar series offerings, we are pleased to present leaders and pioneers in the field who will address key aspects of using the arts in research, their philosophical approaches and foundations, fundamental ideas, and also controversies that arise from such research approaches. This journal edition is intended to be thought-provoking and accessible to all - researchers, practitioners, educators, community workers, and students. We hope to learn from each other and to inspire one another to reach new questions, share the joy of inquiry, and above all ‘to make the art’ that becomes the research. We encourage submissions in all research genres that utilize art in its colorful array: drama, performance, poetry, dance and movement, music, visuals, and other intermodal expressive forms. Submissions may use, but are not limited to the following research approaches:
Performance as Research (PaR), Art-based Research (ABR), Arts Informed Research (AIR) & Artistic Research (AR)
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 1, 2022
We look forward to your contribution. Many thanks in advance for your willingness to write for CAET.

CAET is the premier source in the world intended for artists, educators, and therapists who use and integrate creative and expressive arts in their work. The journal’s focus is the discussion of perspectives, theory-based applications, and practical results on issues concerning West and East—particularly China and its neighboring cultures. The journal fosters dialogue between East and West, and world cultures and supports cross-disciplinary cooperation and research between creative arts (creative writing, dance/movement, drama, film, music, and visual arts) and education, therapy, psychology, medicine, and other related fields. CAET was founded in 2015 by Dr. Tony Zhou and was led by two editors-in-chief, Shaun McNiff, University Professor at Lesley University, and Dr. Debra Kalmanowitz of the Academic College for the Arts and Society until 2021. In 2022 new CAET co-editors will be Vivien Marcow-Speiser, Clive Holmwood, Ronald P.M.H. Lay, and Michal Lev
CAET has an editorial board consisting of 50 leading international expressive arts experts. In the Fall of 2018, CAET became an Open Access (OA) Journal, the first of its kind in the various communities that it serves. Online publication significantly expands accessibility and incorporates color, imagery, and video to more effectively present the artistic expressions which inform every aspect of the publication. The inaugural OA issue (4.1) features Outsider Art in China in dialogue with the West. CAET subscriptions are also available in hard copy. In 2021, CAET became the official publication of IACAET (The International Association of Creative Arts in Education and Therapy), making it far and broad-reaching for a global community. Find more information about IACAET on https://www.iacaet.org/
CAET invites research articles, case reports, program descriptions, position papers, interviews, artwork, and conference reports relevant to the field. We also welcome books for review consideration. Manuscripts are subject to a peer-review process before being accepted and published. Contributions are to be in English and will be published with bilingual abstracts in English and Chinese. CAET publishes two issues per year in both print and online versions and is distributed worldwide and collected by the National Library of China, Royal Dutch National Library, and major universities in China.
The Journal’s East-West perspective is dedicated to exploring, presenting, and understanding the necessary interdependence of all world communities — current, past, and future — as originally envisioned by the SìXiàng(四象), the four creatures who stand at the cardinal directions of the universe and affirm China’s historic emphasis on living in attunement with nature. Contributions regarding how artistic expressions, in their infinite uniqueness, relate to this shared humanity are welcomed from all regions of the world.
The Journal encourages scholarly, engaging, and art-based submissions in varied media (visual art, film and video, dance, drama, poetry and literature, music, integrated arts, and all possible modes of artistic expression) presented in ways that are accessible to the public. Read more.
