CFAR





Centre for Artistic Research

CfAR – the Centre for Artistic Research – is a profiled research centre at the University of the Arts Helsinki (Uniarts Helsinki). Its principal aim is to develop and support activities in Artistic Research (AR) at the postdoctoral level, both in the Academies (Academy of Fine Arts, Sibelius Academy, and Theatre Academy) and in the Uniarts Helsinki as a whole.
 
CfAR was created in order to form a community where artistic practice and practitioners, research and researchers can interact in varied and fruitful ways. It gathers all postdoctoral artist-researchers, whether they work in professional fields outside universities or within them, by contract or as visiting researchers, with or without external funding, in Finland or abroad.  The staff members at Uniarts Helsinki 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.
 
Introduction to Uniarts’ research as a whole, including AR, other types of research, and doctoral research: Uniarts Helsinki research
 
CfAR maintains the Portal for artistic research activities in Finland, which gathers information about artistic research in this part of the world.
 
AR is one of the three profiled/featured research areas at Uniarts. Each area has a centre within the Uniarts Helsinki Research Hub. The other two centres are Taideyliopiston historiafoorumi (HiFo) - Uniarts Helsinki's History Forum - and Center for Educational Research and Academic Development in the Arts (CERADA). There are strong links between the three, and we complement each other. We collectively form the Research Hub to showcase all the research activities at Uniarts.

PDA event 13.11.2019: A TOUCH OF THE PAST / MENNEEN KOSKETUS



Miten mennyt koskettaa tutkijaa, ja miten tutkija onnistuisi koskettamaan yleisöä? 
Millä tavalla monumentista tulee ihminen, Jeanista Janne? 
Mitä vastata elokuiseen kirjeeseen sadan vuoden takaa?
 
 
Tervetuloa keskustelemaan näistä kysymyksistä Teatterikorkeakoululla pidettävään taiteen ja historian ”salonkiin” keskiviikkona 13.11.2019 klo 15–19, Teatterikorkeakoulu, C-portaikko, sali 535, Haapaniemenkatu 6, Helsinki. 

Tapahtuma on osa Taideyliopiston Taiteellisen tutkimuksen keskuksen (Centre for Artistic Research / CfAR) ohjelmaa, ja se on jatkoa viime syksynä järjestetylle tilaisuudelle Menneisyyden jälkiä. Järjestäjiin kuuluvat myös Taideyliopiston Historiafoorumi ja Turun yliopiston tutkimuskeskus SELMA (Centre for the Study of Storytelling, Experientiality and Memory). Tapahtuman kieli on suomi. Tilaisuudessa on tarjoilua - tervetuloa!

 

How are we as researchers touched by people from the past, and how could we, in turn, touch our audiences? How to transform a monument into a human being, Jean into Janne? And what if someone from the past sent us a letter, what would we reply?

Welcome to discuss a these questions in a “salon” of artists and researchers on Wednesday 13.11.2019 at 15:00–19:00 at the Theatre Academy, Room 535, Staircase C (Haapaniemenkatu 6, Helsinki).The event is organized in collaboration with the Uniarts Helsinki History Forum and Turku University’s research centre SELMA (Centre for the Study of Storytelling, Experientiality and Memory).
