Centre for Research-Creation in Digital Media

Centre for Research-Creation in Digital Media


The Centre for Research-Creation in Digital Media was established by Professor Harold Thwaites to foster a media research-creation environment at Sunway University. We are a transdisciplinary hub for creative digital media comprising local and international partners in forming collaboratories, both physical and virtual, cutting across time and space. We are aligned with (but not limited to) the School of Arts and its related departments, and may evolve to be inclusive of other schools to generate digital media content and R&D across the university.

We have assembled a transdisciplinary team of media researchers and creative designers with extensive backgrounds in the industry and education to forge the applications and content required in introducing and supporting creative digital media initiatives at Sunway University and across the Sunway Group.
