10 year docARTES

18 November 2014

2014 marked the 10th anniversary of the docARTES programme. In November 2014 we celebrated this decade of partnership and passionately working together to prepare doctoral students for artistic research and to foster a professional research culture.

A festive magazine was specially made for this occasion.  


docARTES students and doctors showcased their research in singularly stunning performance events. Various speakers reflected on the first 10 years of docARTES and highlighted future challenges and opportunities for artistic research in Flanders and The Netherlands. 


In the first 10 years docARTES provided training and guidance to more than 40 doctoral students from all over the world, preparing them for careers as professional artistic researcher. 21 students have graduated since. docARTES however views its role as much more than a partnership providing doctoral training: it is actively engaged, using its voice, partnering and contributing its expertise toward third cycle programmes and other doctoral programmes for artists worldwide.
