This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book describes various ways in which the arts and creative practices are manifest in contemporary university-based adult education work, be it the classroom, in research or in the community. Working as co-instructors, co-collaborators and co-artists, the authors share how they used concepts of embodied ways of knowing and practices of storytelling and performance to refine the linguistic imagination. The book examines the authors' work on 'Teacher education and the pop-up art school'. In 'Theatre-based action research for health in Denmark', the authors in the book explores the potential and the challenges of using drama as a tool of action research in the healthcare community. The book also explores the process leading up to a metissage performance, describes its effect on the audience and reflects on the lessons learned along the way.
