Welcome to the website of the Screen Production and Research Collaboration (SPARC) Centre.

We are a multi-campus research centre specializing in the practice-based research in media arts, communication and culture.

SPARC Centre is committed to local, global, interactive and interdisciplinary approaches to screen production research and in order to meet its research objectives SPARC Centre undertakes the following activities:

  • collaborative practice-based research
  • collaborative project incubation
  • collaborative postgraduate supervision and thesis examination
  • industry partnership
  • advocacy
  • seminars and conferences
  • exhibitions and festivals
  • international linkages

The administration of the SPARC Centre is currently in a caretaker mode. The management and the governance of the Centre will be finalized at the end of this OLT-funded project. Until then the activities of the Centre will be overseen by the SPARC Steering Committee made up of the project partners who will act in consultation with all the project participant and with the Australian Screen Production Education and Research Association (ASPERA) Reference group.
