Abstract

This paper aims to introduce the revolutionary method of participatory arts-based research (ABR) as a legitimate ‘way of knowing’ to push the boundaries of how tourism researchers view and build the transformative knowledge processes in the tourism field. The goal of this paper is not to naively advocate for tourism scholars to embrace arts-based methodologies as being the panacea for solving world injustice, rather to build an excitement for ‘rogue’ scholars to boldly and brazenly step forward to be pioneering architects on the ground floor of building the ABR approach. The author argues that new ways of knowing need to be explored in tourism research to better our understanding of how and if the field is ready to make another shift toward the unknown in order to have a deeper and richer understanding of the human experience in relation to place, community, travel, tourism, and development.

Running head: PUSHING DEEPER INTO OTHER WAYS OF KNOWING USING ARTS-BASED RESEARCH

This paper aims to introduce the revolutionary method of participatory arts-based research (ABR) as a legitimate ‘way of knowing’ to push the boundaries of how tourism researchers view and build the transformative knowledge processes in the tourism field. The goal of this paper is not to naively advocate for tourism scholars to embrace arts-based methodologies as being the panacea for solving world injustice, rather to build an excitement for ‘rogue’ scholars to boldly and brazenly step forward to be pioneering architects on the ground floor of building the ABR approach. The author argues that new ways of knowing need to be explored in tourism research to better our understanding of how and if the field is ready to make another shift toward the unknown in order to have a deeper and richer understanding of the human experience in relation to place, community, travel, tourism, and development.
