Axon: Creative Explorations
Axon: Creative Explorations is an international peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the characteristics of creativity and the creative process. It is published by the Centre for Creative and Cultural research at the University of Canberra.

Axon is published twice a year (usually in March and September) and encourages research into and discussion of the broad domain of creativity, including:

  • the methods and techniques of artists and other creative professionals
  • approaches to creative-led research and the theorisation of creative practice
  • the ways in which creative works are made and function
  • poetics and poetry, and
  • the cultural contexts and theoretical frameworks informing creative practice.

The journal is named for the axon, long extensions from the body of neurons which conduct electrical signals to synapses, thus being crucial to transmission within the nervous system. Though each axon is microscopic, when bundled together they play an important part in providing the energy, the action and the communication that make us human. We intend that Axon will operate in much the same way: providing points of connection and transmission across the creative community, providing the sparks of energy we need to keep making our work, and providing a space in which creative thought can be disseminated.
