Artistic Doctorates in Europe

Artistic Doctorates in Europe: Third cycle provision in Dance and Performance (ADiE), will investigate and create a step change in Practice as Research (PaR) inquiries within research level degrees in Dance and Performance.

It also seeks to substantiate and enhance the impact of these degrees on the creative industries and even beyond.

ADiE are currently inviting performance researchers, PhD candidates, academic supervisors or those involved in supporting the creative work of artists more broadly to participate in an survey to support the project.  Please click here for more information. 

ADiE asks:

What are the expectations, perceptions and experiences of the Artistic Doctorate?

What are the methodological tools and other training needs of artistic researchers in Dance and Performance?

How are doctoral dissertations in artistic research best supervised and supported?

How do doctoral studies through artistic research respond to, and prepare candidates for, the future?

How might universities and creative partners better support artistic research doctorates and reflect the future needs of the creative industry and higher education environments?

To address these questions ADiE will undertake four strands of work:

1. Review the experiences/expectations of artistic doctoral candidates in different national contexts to identify best practices and gaps/ issues.

2. Devise open educational resources / research training materials focusing in depth upon methodologies for artistic research in the public realm.

3. Develop guidelines that enable university & collaborative partners to better supervise and support the life cycle of Artistic Doctorates

4. Offer workshops, conferences and undertake advocacy for Artistic doctorates

The first public event Talking, Thinking, Dancing will take place in June 2017 in Nottingham, UK.

ADiE is a partnership between Zodiak Centre for New Dance, Kiasma Theatre Museum and University of the Arts Helsinki (FI), Weld and Stockholm University of the Arts (SE), and Dance4, University of Chichester and Middlesex University (UK), funded by Erasmus+.
