Francesca is co-founder and co-director of the non/fictionLab research group in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University.
non/fictionLab is a world-leading research outfit for new creative practices. Our research ecology includes essayists, poets, novelists, media-makers, photographers, editors, publishers, and literary and cultural studies scholars.
non/fictionLab exists to explore and articulate the value of new creative work as a playful vessel for the imagination, a thinking through making that can show us who we are and how we are implicated in the lives of others.
non/fictionLab builds and supports laboratories of practice around matters of social, political, cultural and environmental concern. We work in partnership with fellow scholars, writers and artists, and with industries and communities, local and international.
non/fictionLab investigates how imaginations frame realities, and how the world talks to and through our practices, to affect change and grow new knowledge.
We foster collaborative research projects in partnership with fellow scholars and artists, and with industries and communities, local and international. We provide support for emerging researchers and a growing community of research students.
non/fiction Lab helps create events, projects, programs and public presentations that feature a diverse range of local and international writers, artists and academics.
You can find out more about non/fictionLab’s projects and events on Twitter or by joining the mailing list – email firstname.lastname@example.org.
