Research in Art Education | Episode 1: Sharing Best Practices

dossier: Research in and through the arts
In Research in Art Education, artist-researcher Fabiola Camuti interviews students, researchers, and managers working in university of the arts to discuss the importance, challenges, and possibilities of conducting research within arts academies.

The KUO (national art education sector) Strategic Plan 2021-2025 identifies ‘research’ as one of the three key areas art universities should focus on in the coming years. Research is essential not only to the arts and professional art education, but also to our relationship with the world and society. Research already takes on an important role within universities of the arts, however, practices and ideas on the role, methods, ways of conducting research and its embedment within each and every institution, still leave space for further development, investigation, and actions to be taken. For this reason, starting 2022, a national ‘Research working group’ will work together to strengthen the knowledge ecosystem and the research culture within our academies.

This podcast series is connected to the events organized by the working group around the question: how can we make research sustainable in our academies?

The podcast is sponsored by the Vereniging Hogescholen and hosted by Radio ArtEZ for Studium Generale.
