CFAR





Centre for Artistic Research

The CfAR–Centre for Artistic Research–is one of the high-profile centres of Uniarts Helsinki research. Its principal aim is to support and develop activities related to postdoctoral artistic research both at the academy (Academy of Fine Arts, Sibelius Academy, and Theatre Academy) and at the Uniarts Helsinki levels.

CfAR was created in order to form a communicative and operative community where practice and practitioners, research and researchers can interact in various fruitful ways. It gathers all postdoctoral artist-researchers, whether they work in professional fields outside universities or within them, by contract or as affiliated researchers, with or without external funding, in Finland or abroad. University of the Arts Helsinki’s staff members who have a degree in the arts or conduct artistic research are automatically part of the CfAR community, regardless of their unit or cycle. In addition, CfAR is open to other researchers interested in the study of artistic practices and processes who may benefit from artistic interaction and collaboration with artists and artist-researchers.

Artists, Institutions and Social Responsibility

Tuesday 4.12.2018 at 15:00–19, Theatre Academy, Room 525, Staircase C (Haapaniemenkatu 6, Helsinki)

The group ‘Socially Responsible Arts Institutions and Artists’ is a collective of artists and researchers. They are part of Cupore and ArtsEqual, specializing in promoting the potential in art to create equal encounters between people from different backgrounds. The group’s art and research take place in and with communities, on their own terms or for them. The forms of activity are prison theatre, community museum, community art, audience involvement courses and guided walks in the city. This is the first opportunity to share their work with CfAR. The session is led by Mari Martin and Pekka Kantonen. Refreshments will be provided – Welcome!
