Arts-based research into identity and community with Dr Ying (Ingrid) Wang

  • ZOOM


  • (+GST for Australian members)

Registration is closed

For Ying, an immigrant creative arts therapist working in her adopted country, the arts serve as a bridge connecting her root culture and adopted culture, and bridging the gap between her role as a therapist and her clients, and fostering a connection between her own identity and others. She will present the arts-based inquiries she utilised in her doctoral study and post-doctoral research project. Ying has employed arts-based inquiries to delve into her multifaceted identity as an immigrant, therapist and researcher, demonstrating how this enriches her clinical practice and research efforts. Presently, Ying is leading an arts-based research initiative focusing on the New Zealand Asian community. Through the use of the arts, she is dedicated to creating a safe and culturally sensitive space for exploring complex and sensitive research topics, shunning cultural appropriation in the process.


Dr Ying (Ingrid) Wang is a post-doctoral research fellow at the Centre for Arts and Social Transformation at the University of Auckland. Originally from China, Ying is an artist, poetry enthusiast, researcher, therapist and educator who has lived in New Zealand for over two decades. She is deeply committed to bringing culturally diverse perspectives into clinical practice and academic research. Her dedication stems from her passion for making a meaningful difference in people's health and wellbeing, and in the pursuit of social justice and equity within communities through the transformative power of arts. Her previous research has focused on immigrant identity formation and culturally relevant arts-based inquiry, and she is currently leading arts-based research projects on wellbeing and equity within New Zealand Asian communities.
