Abstract How did the internationally acclaimed sound art and exploratory music festival, Liquid Architecture evolve? Can sound and music make a difference to the wellbeing of Emergency outpatients? Developing practice-based research through student centred teaching and learning is vital if we are to develop an innovation framework in Australia for art education. By drawing upon synergies between art, industry and other disciplines for teaching and learning, researchers will encourage real world experiences and establish partnerships for a vibrant research culture. This paper will demonstrate how student, artist and industry centred projects can act as conduits for connection, collaboration and impact in applied research settings. Dr Keely Macarow and Dr Philip Samartzis will explain how innovative teaching and learning projects can shift dialogues in art making and establish long-term collaborations with artists, cultural institutions, government and industry partners. The paper will discuss how partnerships and interdisciplinary projects with the Liquid Architecture sound art festival and the Emergency department, St Vincent's Hospital - Melbourne have evolved, and demonstrate how staff and students can facilitate research projects which forge dynamic cultural connections and make a difference to the way we listen to, view and inhabit our world.
