Meta Collab

The QUT research group is a team of researchers at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, working on a variety of projects relating to user-led content production in its various guises. Our initial aim is to map the terms and ideas we employ in our work, and to begin a conversation about how these terms interrelate.

For more information about the group, please contact Axel Bruns (
