TRACE works closely with a number of associate individuals, organisations, research groups, and centres. These groups share an interest in the theme of creativity and education across borders, and are also working with us to build a university-wide environment to support researchers as writers.

Some of our associate groups include:

Intercultural Communication through Practice Research Group – considering how cultural heritage is shared across borders and how knowledge is transmitted through arts practice.

Empathy and Writing Research Group – researching the uses and limits of empathy in personal and professional life, creativity, reading, writing and in recovering from trauma.

Arts for Social Change Research Group – bringing together researchers across Bath Spa University whose work engages with issues of social justice and ways to facilitate social intervention and change through the arts.

Through our Associate Director, Anil De Sequeira, we are seeking to develop closer relationships with scientific researchers at Bath Spa University.
