Lucy Bolger

 

Dr. Lucy Bolger is the academic coordinator for the Creative Arts Therapies Research Unit (CATRU). She brings 12 years of experience in creative arts therapy training, research and practice to her current role as academic coordinator for CATRU.

In her disciplinary area of music therapy, Lucy has worked with people at all stages of life, in clinical and community settings, both in Australia and internationally. She completed her PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2013, examining processes of collaboration with communities supporting marginalised youth. Post-PhD, Lucy coordinated and delivered a post-graduate music therapy training program in North India for two years, before returning to her current role at Melbourne University. Lucy’s work and research focuses on collaboration, sustainability and participatory practice in music therapy with marginalised groups and individuals. She has multiple peer-reviewed publications in these areas, and has been involved in music therapy research projects in community and school settings. Lucy has a developing interest in social innovation and social enterprise and how these ideas interface with the creative arts therapies.
