Program for Visiting Researchers

The Centre for Artistic Research (CfAR) Visiting Researchers program supports postdoctoral artist-researchers and researchers who work in and through artistic processes and practices. The visiting contract is normally for two years for funded projects, and one year for non-funded projects. The aim is to support researchers in AR to build their careers regardless of the phases they are in.
Visiting Researchers can benefit from the CfAR community, where practice and practitioners as well as research and researchers can interact in varied fruitful ways. Visiting Researchers are provided access to Uniarts IT systems as well as the possibility to participate in other programs organized by the Centre and applying for the support offered by the Centre.
