“Artistic Research is a crucial part of the future of academia… if the university is going to serve the next stages of human society, we need to continue to develop robust and transformative practices.”

“Practice as Research is the major channel for arts to be topical, radical, progressive and truly creative.”
“The relationship between the cultural sector and education sector is vital.”
(ADiE Doctoral Survey respondents)

Join us in creative dream spaces, performance and debate as we gather to shape the future of doctoral studies via artistic research. As an established qualification in some contexts, yet just emerging in others, the artistic PhD acknowledges creative practice as a form of knowledge.

Whether called ‘practice-as-research’, ‘artistic research’, amongst other terms, there are few established guidelines for the field and artistic researchers are constantly (re-)forming the path even as they travel upon it. Indeed, little attention has been paid to the real complexities that this mode of research engenders in terms of its facilitation, support and outcomes.

Further, the intersection with, and potential impact of, the Artistic PhD to the arts sector, and on audiences more widely, goes untested. This is both the promise and challenge of artistic research.

Per/forming Futures is an opportunity to share, investigate and re-envision the doctorate with keynotes and performances from leading figures in the field.
