University of the Arts Helsinki.

The Performing Arts Research Centre (Tutke) at the Theatre Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki welcomes artistic researchers at doctoral and post-doctoral levels to take part in the fourth biannual colloquium on artistic research in performing arts.

Artistic research, art-based research, practice-based research, practice-led research, performance as research – these are just some of the terms and approaches that have been developed to describe knowledge production originating from artistic concerns. This colloquium is the fourth in a series of biannual colloquia, organised by the Performing Arts Research Centre at the University of the Arts, Theatre Academy Helsinki, aimed at addressing the problems and possibilities of artistic research, particularly those involving the performing arts. The term ‘performing arts’ is here understood in a broad sense that encompasses a variety of different creative practices. The purpose of these colloquia is to contribute to the development of research practices in the field of the performing arts and to foster their social, pedagogical and ecological connections.
