Introduction to the Artist-Researchers’ Manifestos and to Artistic Research

by Jane Bacon and Leena Rouhiainen

Sat 31.8.
Zodiak Foyer

The three performances in the program offer utopian manifestos of future artistic doctoral research with a time span of 10-100 years. The invitation to envision the future was offered to three artistic doctoral candidates in dance and performance, one from each country represented in the ADiE project. This introduction shortly introduces the motivation for the assignment and offers insight into the framework of artistic research in UK, Finland and Sweden.

What did my PhD 'do'?:  The impact of doctoral research

by Vida Midgelow

Sat 31.8.
Zodiak Studio C4

Through a series of recorded conversations undertaken by ADiE, the presentation will reveal the impact of doctoral research on the individual researcher, and beyond, to future research and to dance practices. 

These conversations bring together an international collection of artistic researchers to share their personal stories and reflect on the differing ways in which their experience of artistic research has made a difference.  

Such stories are important in assessing the long term effect of the doctorate, providing us with materials (perhaps for the first time) through which we can articulate the value and advocate the benefit of artistic research degree programmes.
