Academy of Creative and Performing Arts, Leiden University, Leiden (NL)

Celebrating 10 years PhDArts – How do we establish, sustain and nourish a vital research culture in the arts?
To mark the ten-year anniversary of PhDArts, the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA) and the University of the Arts The Hague organize a two-day conference.

Over the past 20 years, artistic research has steadily gained ground as a new research discipline in The Netherlands. PhD programs in artistic research have been established or are being developed, in a collaborative effort between universities and art schools. With this conference, PhDArts aims to address ways to consolidate, sustain and nourish a research culture in the arts on a national level. The conference will comprise artistic presentations by researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines enrolled at 3rd level educational institutions across the country, as well as two keynote lectures on the topic of the conference, break-out groups and artistic presentations by ACPA PhD candidates and alumni.
