Cultivating creativity

How does the creative process work?  How are novel and valued things bought into being?  Can we use evidence-based examinations of creativity to increase our ability to generate unique and valued products, processes, and ideas?

Professor Phillip McIntyre is a Communication and Media scholar from the School of Creative Industries looking to answer these questions through his research on the phenomenon of creativity.

His interest in the systems that facilitate or obstruct the creative process and creative enterprise, was sparked in part by the impact of the digital revolution on song writing.

Prof McIntyre is recognised as a ‘founding voice’ of the field of research now called song writing studies. An active APRA registered songwriter, he spent considerable time ensconced in the music industry before coming to academia.

“Just recently I was invited to the UK to help launch the Arts and Humanities Research Council funded Songwriting Studies Research Network”, Dr McIntyre explains.

“This whole area of study is now off and running, and I’m pleased to have been a crucial part of that.

Canary in a coal mine

Exploring the concepts of creativity and innovation in song writing sparked a thirst for a broader scope of investigation.

“Given that the music industry has acted as a canary in the coal mine for all the digital changes the creative industries have been going through, it was not difficult to scale up my investigation from songs to the music industry and from there to the creative industries more generally,” Dr McIntyre explains.

Prof McIntyre now looks at advertising, architecture, film, radio, TV, publishing, visual and performing art, digital media, games, app development and the design sectors of the creative industries.

He argues that creativity, and the systems that facilitate it, extend well beyond the bounds of what is traditionally recognized as art.

Globally, colleagues are using Dr McIntyre’s work not only to inform their study of the Arts but also the investigation of the value of creativity in less obvious fields such as Maths, Engineering, and Science.

How does understanding and quantifying the systems and elements involved in creative enterprise and the ecosystems that spring up around such ventures, aid in the development, maintenance and scaling of creative industries?

Culture hunter

With funding and research partners from industry, government and business, Dr McIntyre and his team have undertaken several years of intensive research concerning Creativity and Cultural Production in the Hunter Region.

“We were recently part of a successful ARC Linkage grant that enabled us to take our innovative approach to creativity and apply it to the mapping of the Creative Industries in the Hunter Region”.

The resultant 546-page report acknowledges the 10,000 workers in the local creativity and cultural production sector, and the $1 billion contribution it makes annually to the regional economy.

The 'Creativity and Cultural Production' report, has been utilised by policymakers and others working in and with these increasingly significant industries - either educationally, politically, economically, or culturally.

The research has had, as a result, a deep impact on the Hunter region, with Dr McIntyre’s team universally lauded for the scope and richness of their work.

Addressing assumptions

Dr McIntyre and team are now working with new partners to transfer and scale their innovative mapping techniques.

“Our current industry partners from five different State Government instrumentalities want to identify regional creative hotspots, find out why they’re successful and then take that information and apply it to a number of struggling regions in their own states", he says.

“That will make a difference”.

From mentoring individuals in his field to influencing local government policy to informing the discourse of national creative bodies, making a difference is what Dr McIntyre is all about.

A dedicated teacher, he believes it is the contemporary and translational nature of his work that resonates within the student body.

“Once our students realize they are being taught the latest cutting edge research by an international expert in this area, and one who has also worked professionally for some time in the creative industries, they respond very well indeed,” Dr McIntyre says.

“Most importantly they take this knowledge into their own future oriented working lives, where they soon come to realize how valuable all that research on creativity is to them”.

“It makes their creative lives so much easier”.

Dr McIntyre explains that the biggest barrier faced by critical thinking, evidence-based researchers in his area face is a very well-entrenched set of cultural assumptions about creativity.

“In research terms at least, creativity is increasingly seen as an emergent property of a creative system in action.  That is exciting for me as a scholar as this is the approach I’ve been using for some time”.

Career Summary

Biography

Summary

Professor Phillip McIntyre is a Communication and Media scholar. He has been involved in external and internal grants valued at $1,113,594 of which the University of Newcastle is in receipt of $591,850. Dr McIntyre, a Detailed Assessor for the ARC, did very well in the last national Impact and Engagement exercise. Based on projects led by Prof McIntyre the University of Newcastle (UON) received a HHH (3) score, the highest rating, for FOR 19. Phillip McIntyre was also the Head of Discipline for Communication and Media at the University of Newcastle for nine years where he had the responsibility of overseeing teaching and research matters within the discipline of Communication. He was instrumental in forming the Communication and Media Research (CAMR) group, the Creativity in Higher Education Network (CHEN) and more recently was the Group Leader of the Future Work Research Group. He has led the informal Creativity and Creative Industries research group for quite a number of years. His international collaborators, particularly those at Leeds Beckett University in the UK, have proved beneficial to this institution. He received an Excellence in Research Supervision Award from the VC and was also selected by the PVC FSIT for the Emerging Research Leaders program at the University of Newcastle (UoN) in 2011. He was awarded his PhD in March 2004 from Macquarie University, and has since published a number of C1 journals articles, A1 books, B1 book chapters, E1 conference papers and other publications, as well as being recognized internationally for his research expertise.

Research Expertise

Professor Philip McIntyre has made a number of contributions to his field of research. With his research centered on creativity and cultural production, he was the first to take up a systems based unification of psychological and sociological approaches to creativity and cultural production through his unique interdisciplinary amalgamation of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's and Pierre Bourdieu's work. This thinking was triggered by Dr McIntyre's early work on songwriting and creativity which located him as the first scholar to investigate this central artefact; one that drives the popular music industry. Now described as a 'founding voice' in the field of songwriting studies, Dr McIntyre was invited in 2019 to give the inaugural keynote address to the AHRC funded Songwriting Studies Research Network in the United Kingdom. Phillip McIntyre has also published a new systems model of communication which synthesizes the best aspects of the classic transmission model and the more contemporary cultural context model of communication. He was instrumental in the development of what has been called Post-Mixed Methods, an innovative methodological approach to research in the creative industries. In addition, his research was also a fundamental driver of Systems Centred Learning (SCL), a published and applied pedagogical approach to educating for creativity within the creative industries.

At heart Prof McIntyre researches the fundamentals of how novel and valued things are created by human beings. He seeks to answer a basic research question: what is the most rational and evidence-based way to explain how novel things are bought into being particularly within the creative industries? In addition to this basic research question, he also seeks to answer an applied question: How can these explanations help to increase humankind’s ability to generate unique and valued products, processes and ideas? In short he researches the phenomenon of creativity and innovation.

Phillip McIntyre led the ‘Hunter Creative Industries as an Entrepreneurial System’ project which was primarily funded by an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Grant. Dr McIntyre was Lead CI on this grant formally entitled 'Creativity and Cultural Production: An Applied Ethnographic Study of New Entrepreneurial Systems in the Creative Industries.' This research project was the subject of a recent media piece written by economic geographer Prof Phillip O'Neill from UWS:

“Researchers at the University of Newcastle have set high standards in their report Creativity and Cultural Production in the Hunter. It's a journey-setting document. [This] encyclopaedic 546-page report is a baseline study of the make-up of the creative and cultural industries in the Hunter. The Creativity and Cultural Production report is refreshingly different from the cash-for-comment economic analyses you see for many sectors. The report carefully explains the rich and diverse composition of the 10,000 workers in the creativity and cultural production sector and the $1 billion contribution it makes annually to the regional economy. At its core are musicians, the media, publishers, advertisers, designers, artists, the theatre, filmmakers, electronic gamers and architects. And for each paid professional there is a thick moleskin pad of amateurs, interns and volunteers, together delivering cultural products and services to a surprisingly vast Hunter audience” (O’Neill 2019, online).

The 'Creativity and Cultural Production' report has been taken up by policymakers and those working in, and dealing with, these increasingly significant industries, either educationally, politically, economically or culturally. At a deeper level this ARC funded industry linked research has helped expose and explain the Hunter's regional creative system in action, what others have described as a dynamic innovation ecosystem. The research has had, as a result, a deep impact on the region so much so that Dr McIntyre and his research colleagues did very well in the recent national Impact and Engagement exercise. At the conclusion of this exercise, FoR 19, Creative Arts & Writing at the University of Newcastle (UON) received a HHH (3) score, the highest rating. Only four other institutions in the country achieved a rating like this for FoR 19. The UON Impact Case Study for FoR 19 was based on the ‘Hunter Creative Industries as an Entrepreneurial System’ project led by Prof McIntyre.

Prof McIntyre and his colleague A/Prof Susan Kerrigan were recently awarded, along with a research team from QUT headed by Distinguished Prof Stuart Cunningham, another ARC Linkage Grant focused at identifying and explaining 'creative hotspots', like the Hunter region, but this time more broadly focused at the national level. The industry partners for this grant include Create NSW, Creative Victoria, Arts Qld, Arts SA and Arts WA. Dr McIntyre was also added as CI to an ARC Discovery Grant looking at the history of popular music in WA.

Prof McIntyre was a visiting scholar at Leeds Beckett University in the United Kingdom in 2010 working with a research group in sound production in the Faculty of Information and Technology. He was selected by the PVC to be part of the inaugural Emerging Research Leader's program in 2011 and recently received an Excellence in Research Supervision Award.

 

Dr McIntyre's sole authored A1 book, Creativity and Cultural Production: Issues for Media Practice, was published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2012. The Creative System in Action: Understanding Cultural Production and Practice, co-edited with Dr Janet Fulton and Dr Elizabeth Paton, was published by the same publisher in 2016. His co-edited book with Dr Janet Fulton, Creating Space in the Fifth Estate, was published by Cambridge Scholarly Publishers in 2017. He, along with his colleagues Dr Janet Fulton, Dr Elizabeth Paton, Dr Susan Kerrigan and Dr Michael Meany, delivered Educating for Creativity within Higher Education to Palgrave MacMillan and it was published in 2018. For the last A1 book the leading scholar in this field, Distinguished Professor Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, wrote that:

"The group of researchers at Newcastle who contributed to this book are at the forefront of scholarship dedicated to understanding how humankind has been using creativity in the past, and how the process can be supported in the future. To my knowledge, there has been no previous center anywhere on the planet where such a close-knit and dedicated group of scholars has existed quite like this one" (in McIntyre et.al. 2018, p. xi).

He is contracted by Palgrave MacMillan to write his fifth and sixth books to be delivered in February of 2021 and May of 2022 respectively. Both are A1 HERDC category books. 

Prof McIntyre was the President of the Australian and New Zealand Communication Association (ANZCA) from 2016 to 2017 and is a current member of the International Communication Association (ICA) and the Association for the Study of the Art of Record Production (ASARP). He sits on the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Art of Record Production (JARP) and is a Senior Editor for the Journal of Undergraduate Ethnography. He has guest-edited the Global Media Journal and the Communication Research and Practice journal. He was also the Co-Convenor of the Annual Australian and New Zealand Communication Conference, Creating Space in the Fifth Estate, in 2016.

As well as having a research focus on creativity and innovation, Prof McIntyre also teaches media production and media studies courses in the Bachelor of Communication program at UON melding his research approach into his teaching. He has, along with his colleagues, Dr Janet Fulton, A/Prof Susan Kerrigan and Dr Michael Meany, developed and published what has been called Systems Centered Learning (SCL). The SCL approach, which is grounded in the research literature on creativity, has been applied to the teaching of creative media practice in this and one other institution in Australia as well as in Singapore. It allows teachers to set the conditions for students to be creative in, while facilitating an ever increasing sense of the student's own growing abilities as they work inside an action-based creative system. Future Fellow, Anne Harris, from the School of Education at RMIT described Dr McIntyre et.al's book about SCL, Educating for Creativity within Higher Education (2018), as:

"that most useful of texts which gives the reader - even if you don't know it yet - everything you need to build your broad field knowledge about creativity in education, but also one model for improving its presence in higher education...such theoretically informed, practically oriented, and robustly tested models of creativity education will increasingly change the field for the better" (in McIntyre et.al 2018, pp. vii and ix).

Dr McIntyre continues his own creative practice. A recent radio documentary series he co-produced, made about the wine industry for ABC Radio, was funded by the ABC's Regional Production Fund. He continues to maintain his professional audio and digital skills by engineering and producing popular music recordings for Newcastle based musicians, drawing on professional projects like these to reinforce his teaching. Previously Phillip McIntyre was involved in the music industry as a songwriter, performing musician, producer, audio engineer and manager for various musical groups dealing with promoters, record companies and distribution labels. As well as playing hundreds of gigs as a performer he managed a section of a large music retailer and his work as a music journalist entailed interviewing and writing feature stories on a wide range of musicians including David Bowie, John Fogerty, Paul Kelly, Don Walker, Daniel Johns, Mandawuy Yunupingu, Tim Rogers and many others. For a short time he produced and presented a local music radio program on 2NUR FM. He also sat on the 2NUR Advisory Board for ten years. As well as running a production business for live performers a number of the music videos he produced, directed and edited have been broadcast on ABCTV and he continues to produce and engineer music recordings for local artists. He has taught in the Ausmusic Basic Music Industry Skills course at TAFE, which included Daniel Johns from Silverchair as a student in the songwriting course he taught, as well as teaching courses for the Music Industry Training Package at WEA. His latest album of songs was released in 2018 and an EP in 2020. Both are available on iTunes, Spotfiy, Pandora and host of other online streaming and subscriptions services. His band's website is here: http://www.texasradio.com.au/index.html

Professor Philip McIntyre has made a number of contributions to his field of research. With his research centered on creativity and cultural production, he was the first to take up a unification of psychological and sociological approaches to creativity and cultural production through his unique amalgamation of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's and Pierre Bourdieu's work.

This thinking was triggered by Dr McIntyre's early work on songwriting and creativity which located him as the first scholar to investigate this central artefact; one that drives the popular music industry. Since this contribution a number of scholars around the world have taken up the challenge of researching popular songs from this perspective. Described as a 'founding voice' in this area Dr McIntyre was invited in 2019 to give the inaugural keynote address to the AHRC funded Songwriting Studies Research Network in the United Kingdom.

Phillip McIntyre has also put forward a new model of communication which synthesizes the best aspects of the classic transmission model and the more contemporary cultural context model. Each of these contributions to the field is empirically grounded in a systems approach which is exemplified in his groundbreaking research work on what he has termed 'creative systems in action' where he has also introduced the terms 'domain acquisition' and 'domain immersion' to the general lexicon on creativity research. He also contributed to the development of Systems Centred Learning (SCL) which is detailed in the book Educating for Creativity within Higher Education (2018).

Dr McIntyre's methodological approach to his research is primarily centered on ethnography which usually involves participant observation, significant numbers of in-depth interviews, triangulated with artefact analysis. Apart from this ongoing ethnographic research focus, which he has extended to other creative fields apart from songwriting, he also has an interest in the use of innovative research methods to examine the creative process, such as Practitioner Based Enquiry (PBE). As a result of these interests, a wide-ranging knowledge of the research into creativity and innovation and over twenty-five years of relevant industrial and professional experience in all facets of the Australian music industry, Dr McIntyre has ample practical experience in project management bringing a valued set of skills to his research projects.

Dr McIntyre has been successful with both external and internal grants. He has established international research links with colleagues at Leeds Beckett University, Birmingham City University and Goldsmiths College in the UK. Dr McIntyre has published widely with a number of books, book chapters, journal articles and refereed international conference proceedings listed on his Researcher Report (link above). His book, Creativity and Cultural Production: Issues for Media Practice (2012) was published by Palgrave MacMillan and was reviewed positively in Media International Australia.

“Phillip McIntyre gives a thorough overview of the tensions present when thinking about and working within creative industries…McIntyre explores differing theories of creativity. Neatly divided into theoretical and practical sections, Part I investigates the creator as genius, biopsychological perspectives, and social and cultural views of creativity before McIntyre concludes that the best reconceptualization of creativity may lie ‘not in any one of these single positions, but in the confluence of a number of them’ (p. 69)…Part II follows this thread through issues in radio, journalism, television, film, photography and popular music before providing an up-to-date overview of copyright and intellectual property issues in his chapter on the digital revolution…McIntyre sustains a clear argument throughout the book, drawing together a wide range of both traditional and contemporary material to illustrate his claims…However, it is not the case studies that dominate, but the ideas – such as the ‘habitus’, or ‘feel for the game’ (p. 72) that all creative minds possess, or the idea that structural constraints placed upon creativity are in fact precisely what enables it to occur at all” (van der Nagel 2012, p. 178).

His collaboratively edited book Creativity as A System in Action (2016) is also published by the same company. Because of his "standing as a world authority on creativity research" he has been a keynote at a number of conferences and he has delivered other invited public lectures for example at Goldsmiths College, Edinburgh University, RMIT, the University of Copenhagen, Birmingham City University and the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. He recently launched the Routledge book The Economic Philosophy of the Internet of Things (2018) for his friend and colleague economist James Juniper.

Prof Phillip McIntyre is a researcher who has stimulated research into creativity and innovation at UON through his role as Head of Discipline in Communication and Media. He was instrumental in forming the Communication and Media Research (CAMR) group. His international contacts particularly those at Leeds Beckett University in the UK have proved beneficial to both institutions. He recently received an Excellence in Research Supervision Award from the VC and was also selected by the PVC for the Emerging Research Leaders program at the University of Newcastle (UoN) in 2011. He was awarded his PhD in March 2004 from Macquarie University, and has since published a number of C1 journals articles, A1 books, B1 book chapters, E1 conference papers and other publications, as well as being recognized for his research expertise in the international setting.

Teaching Expertise

Prof McIntyre's SFT and SFC scores have been consistently high and he has received commendations from the PVC for his contribution to teaching in the Faculty. He undertook and completed the Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching in 2005. When Dr McIntyre commenced studying for his BA(CS) Honours degree as a mature age student at the University of Newcastle in 1994 he was asked to lecture at the same time into the Communication & Media Arts program at the University. Following this Honours year, he continued to lecture and tutor as a contracted and sessional academic in a variety of courses at the University for the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Department of Leisure and Tourism as well as continuing to teach into the Communication and Media program. At this time he also taught into the BMIS Music Industry Skills course at the Hunter Institute of Higher Education (TAFE). He has also taught courses in the Music Industry Training Package for WEA. After achieving a full time continuing position at the University he has taught into a significant number of courses in the Communication and Media program.

His teaching philosophy encompasses an observable congruence between theoretical understanding and professional practice. He believes practice and theory are intimately intertwined. It is hard to teach young professionals how to be pragmatically creative, something they will be required to on a daily basis within the creative industries without understanding what creativity is. His emphasis on mentoring is premised on the realization that learning can be facilitated through interactions built on concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation. This approach dovetails well with the overall WIL and Authentic Assessment approaches espoused by the University.

His teaching of CMNS3310 Communication, Creativity and Cultural Production, an innovative course completely unique to this University and set up, taught and coordinated by Dr McIntyre, has been described by students in the following ways: 

“So far I think it has been the most valuable course in equipping me for the real world. It's simultaneously depressing (in that creativity loses that element of romantic magic) but also completely inspiring in that creativity is now something honed, encouraged, developed, self determined (well, to a degree) and entirely achievable. The course has almost re-framed my outlook on what work is, what it means to create. I'm really grateful I did the course now too in my second year. It means being injected with a new motivation for completing sometimes mundane university projects (in that everything I do and learn is a building block to innovation) and also looking out to entering the workforce which I have already done with a healthier attitude”. 

“I also wish to add how refreshing it is to meet a lecturer and tutor of your kind. Over the course of my degree I have only been tutored by you twice but both classes were indeed an incredible experience. I think what I most appreciate is how you teach, your intricate methods and how you treat all of us with respect. I cannot imagine how hard it is to try and keep your students actively participating over the years but I just thought I would say that your efforts do not go unnoticed”.

“Thank you for a great semester. I find your subjects hard however feel I always learn so much, thanks for always being so helpful (your composure in class is admirable)!"

To highlight another aspect of his teaching practice Dr McIntyre recently took part in an Authentic Assessment Expo showcasing, among others, his teaching approach to the course CMNS1130 MP: Sound Production. This course, with assessment tasks that replicate real world media industry experiences, has received exceptional qualitative feedback from students: 

“I have never done a course that was so relevant to my goals. This helped me to want to learn and love what I was learning and doing. Nothing was a chore, it was all informative and fantastic for my learning” - “Definitely come a long way since the start of term - skills have increased tenfold” - “This course pretty much fulfilled all my expectations and was not only educational, but extremely fun at the same time” - “Assessments were very well set out and covered a wide variety of topics that have greatly increased my knowledge” - “The assessment items were challenging but in a good way. They helped me learn about production methods and also how to mix on my own with ProTools 10. The opportunity to create our own sound environments is also an interesting and new challenge” - “Great course, relevant topics, good teaching and I have learned a a lot. The assessments were well set out to cover all areas. XXXX is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed the tutes for the latter end as it allowed us to keep going through mixing and ask questions” - “Everything was brilliant.” 

Feedback from the UON Teaching Learning Committee about this Authentic Assessment approach was also extremely positive with the DVCA Professor Darrell Evans citing the work on display at the Expo “as exemplary of what he wants to see going on in teaching and learning at UON both in terms of authentic assessment but also peer (staff) support and exchange of ideas and learning”. This work has been made available as learning resources for the broader university which allows other teachers like Dr McIntyre to “consolidate our reputation for best practice and innovation”. 

Another innovative course Dr McIntyre has been instrumental in developing and delivering is CMNS2800 Creative Industries Entrepreneurship. This course was built to be modularised and capable of being digitally delivered and was put together to impart the knowledge and skills students will need when they attempt to gain an income rather than gain employment. Given the various reports on the future of work this course has been a timely addition to the core courses of BComn program. A pitch presentation done using mobile phone technology, along with a business plan built around an income generating venture within the creative industries, is required of the students as well as a detailed industry report of the area they wish to work in. The intellectual component of the course, built around an understanding of globalisation and digitisation and other fundamental drivers of disruptive change, is tested via an essay. All of these tasks can be delivered and assessed via the digital learning platforms the University has subscribed to.

It should also be noted here that Professor McIntyre's research into creativity has also driven much of the focus of teaching in the Communication undergraduate and postgraduate programs at UON, particularly in the media production stream. The incorporation of fundamental research based ideas on creativity at a pragmatic educational level is the subject of Dr McIntyre's co-written book, Educating for Creativity within Higher Education published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2018. This Systems Centred Learning (SCL) approach to andragogy allows educators to set the conditions for students to be creative in. This approach to teaching has been described as "theoretically informed, practically oriented, and robustly tested" (Harris in McIntyre et.al 2018, pp. ix). 

Administrative Expertise

As the Head of Discipline of Communication and Media for nine years Phillip McIntyre had broad oversight of the BComn program. He was responsible for monitoring its success, as well as taking a strategic approach to not only the planning of teaching and staffing matters but also the guidance and mentoring of staff into successful research programs. During 2017-2018 he was a member of the FEDUA Faculty Board representing the School of Creative Industries (SOCI). Dr McIntyre sat on both the Schools of DCIT and SOCI Executive Committees. He is a member of the SOCI Professoriate, an active group dealing with research strategies, and the the SOCI Research Training Committee. He was a member of the FSIT Faculty Research and Research Training Committee for a number of years. He was the Program Convenor for the Communication and Media Honours Program in FSIT and in this role he was the Chair, Bachelor of Communication (Honours) Program Review Committee for the Faculty of Science & IT in 2004. He has again taken up the Program Convenor role for the Communication and Media Honours Program in the School of Creative Industries. He also sat on the DCIT Research Committee and has been a member of the School of DCIT RHD Progress Committee as well as sitting on the School's CT&L Committee. He was also, for a short period, the Acting Head of Department in 2001. Until recently Dr McIntyre was the VC's Representative on the Advisory Board of the University radio station 2NURFM which he did for ten years. That board had the responsibility of overseeing the ongoing financial stability of the station. He was also Chair of the Peter Pickhover Trust Fund Committee that reports to that Board.

In his prior professional life Dr Phillip McIntyre's aptitude for administration and project management can be seen in his active involvement with the award winning band Supersonic. The most recent project Phillip was involved in for Supersonic ran from 2003 to 2004 and was primarily funded by a group of investors. Phillip was instrumental in negotiating this funding. The project involved the coordination and oversight of the recording, manufacture, release and promotion of a popular music single, an album of songs and a music video, as well as the business management of the musical group involved. Phillip undertook the planning, budgetary and oversight responsibilities during this project period (2003-2004). As well as the production and administrative elements the project required engaging a PR firm (AMB) and a manufacturing plant (MAD) as well as negotiating conditions and terms with a commercial distributor (MGM) for the product. The project also saw him acting as the producer of a promotional video clip using an eight person crew. The administration of this entire project by Phillip McIntyre eventually involved the organization of the work and transportation of five personnel touring across the east coast of Australia. Dr Phillip McIntyre's professional management, creative capability and administrative expertise was instrumental in the success of this project. 

Collaborations

Dr McIntyre has collaborated with industry partners TechnicaCPT and Newcastle Now on an ARC Linkage Project entitled 'Creativity and Cultural Production in the Hunter'. This project undertook an applied ethnographic study of key collaborative groups across all the major creative industries in the Hunter region in NSW. Mapping these industries’ approach to cultural production in the digital realm provided detailed insights into the dynamic entrepreneurial systems at the heart of creative industries and provided comprehensive baseline information on the creative industries in the region. This data did not exist prior to this study and has already had an impact on regional policy makers, industry and academia, moving their understanding of factors affecting creative output in an increasingly technological world to a fact based position.

The mapping of conditions favorable to creativity and innovation in the creative industries in the Hunter has been reported in the popular press, scholarly publications and conference presentations and led directly to further collaboration with Distinguished Prof Stuart Cunningham from QUT, an internationally recognized scholar in creative industries research. This latter collaboration resulted in a national level study accounting for creative hotspots, state by state, and has been funded by the ARC. The industry collaborators on this project include Create NSW, Arts Qld, Arts WA, Arts SA and Creative Victoria. 

As well as these Australian collaborations Professor McIntyre has researched and published with colleagues from Leeds Beckett University in the United Kingdom and has done so now for a number of years.

Public focus on screen business in Australia has been shaped by the information needs of the regulatory and content investment agencies that monitor and support screen content made under the creative control of Australians. This has meant that available data has concentrated on the types of content that have been deemed to require regulatory support¿feature films, documentaries and television drama, with more recent interest in short-form content intended for streaming and online platforms and games. The expansion of the notion of screen business has led to a series of Screen Australia reports that focused the debate on value frameworks that included cultural, economic and audience values. These reports informed the 2017 Federal Government inquiry into the Australian Film and Television Industry¿they do not, however, provide insights into how screen business is incorporated into localised regional economies and they tend to downplay the cultural contributions from the television and advertising sectors. By looking at screen business in four regional Australia cities we demonstrate how four modes of screen production, which include commercial and corporate content, is being made sustainably in the regions and that regional screen content production activities are an important part of the national screen production ecosystem.

This paper proposes that applying models from within creativity research to the discipline of communication will provide innovative ways of examining communication that pushes current knowledge of cultural production beyond established research programmes. At the University of Newcastle in Australia, researchers have been applying the systems model of creativity developed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi to different forms of media practice in an attempt to provide a more comprehensive view of communication.Rather than focusing on either the producer or the receiver as the principal source of creativity, as other communication theories such as the transmission model and the cultural context model have done, this paper will demonstrate that the systems model of creativity allows both the producer and receiver to be examined as equal components within a creative system while also providing the contexts for creative production.Csikszentmihalyi argued that creativity is the product of a system that includes three necessary, but not individually sufficient, elements: a domain of knowledge (the cultural context), an individual who understands and uses that knowledge to produce a novel change, and a field (the social context) that understands the domain and uses that knowledge to judge that the individual's contribution is novel and appropriate. All three elements, domain, individual and field, are equally important in producing a creative outcome.The authors contend that the future of theorising about communication may lie in this confluence-based approach and demonstrate this contention by summarising the findings of creativity research in the communication studies discipline at the University of Newcastle. © 2014 National Communication Association.

Research Projects

Cross Cultural Creativity: An Ethnographic Analysis of Creative Practice in Australian and Indian Creative Industries. 2020 -

In The International Handbook of Creativity (2006) Kaufman and Sternberg assert that “different cultures have different perspectives on what it means to be creative” (2006, frontispiece) and yet, despite these contrasting cultural perceptions, “research into creativity across the globe appears to be heading in the same direction” (Simonton 2006, p. 495). As we “look critically at our own cultural assumptions about how creativity works” (Sawyer 2006, p. 33) this project aims to discover, at the level of cross-cultural creativity, a common way to understand and therefore act upon, creativity. The research asks: Does the systems approach to creativity, already applied extensively in the West (e.g. Csikszentmihalyi 2014; McIntyre 2012, Kerrigan 2013, McIntyre 2019) also have a more universal application? In discovering an answer to this question, we intend to “move beyond the cultural model of one culture at one historical point in time” (Sawyer 2012, p. 33) and develop a common awareness of this vital phenomenon. Only with this “understanding can we improve the creativity of people, groups, organisations, and societies” (ibid). Pilot work investigating these ideas at the cross-cultural level has been conducted by the CIs into the film industry in India and Australia (Kishore, Kerrigan, McIntyre, 2013; McIntyre, Davis & Kishore 2014). This has laid the groundwork for a much more in-depth study of creative activity within and between Australia and India. Our aim now is to discover the veracity and possible universality of the systems approach to creativity through a cross cultural ethnographic analysis of it. This ethnographic work will consist of participant observation, indepth interviews with key informants and artefact analysis, occurring at various sites in India and Australia (which may be adapted for the current situation). From the published outputs (A1 book, C1 articles and a J1 ethnographic research film) expected outcomes will include a deeper understanding of the applicability of the systems model of creativity cross culturally. This discovery is expected to lead to a deeper understanding of the way one of Australia’s trading partners goes about their business. Significantly, this increased cultural awareness will impact not only international co-operation and industry relationships but also help future educational possibilities as Indians and Australians reveal more about each other to each other.
