Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We write this article as a collective of 25 researchers and practitioners to highlight the contribution that creative practice has made to mobilities research. We speak about creativity quite broadly to encompass the artistic, collaborative, generative, and practice-based approaches that are interwoven through our research. Creative forms of research may take the form of creative outputs (e.g. artworks, exhibitions, performances), or as methodological approaches and techniques used in the design and collection of empirical material. We suggest that creative practices have made a standing contribution that has shaped mobilities research, exemplified in the numerous books (e.g. Barry and Keane Citation2020; Kjaerulff et al. Citation2018; Murray and Upstone Citation2014; Witzgall, Vogl and Kesselring Citation2013), exhibitions, conference sessions, events, and more, since the emergence of the new mobilities paradigm. While we are not all doing research exclusively in mobilities, and we each come from different disciplinary and technical backgrounds and proficiencies, it is important to note that each of us has a range of engagement with creative practices (the doing, making, co-creating, and more) that allow our work to interrogate mobilities. We write this collectively to make a provocation to future mobilities research:
