Dr. Donna Wright

A practising visual artist for over 18 years, Donna has been educating adults for 15 years, working in the areas of contemporary arts practice, community development, Aboriginal adult education, and has now been lecturing in communication and cultural studies for the past four years at Central Queensland University's international campuses. Donna's Master's research investigated the relationship between the development of non-iconographic abstract painting in the 20th century and an ontology expressive of acute flux within the evolution of our contemporary western consciousness. Donna's current PhD research project actively engages creative dialogue with a diversity of cultures through individuals responding to pictures. It is primarily a creative exploration into how meaning can be reconstructed through cross-cultural exposure and inter-cultural exchange. Donna's interest lies in reviving the communication tools of visual and creative arts practice by placing them into a position to act as a vehicle for fresh and innovative approaches to our continuing investigations into the human communicative process and its complex systems of mutual understanding.
