The interdisciplinary research and development platform Arts in Context (KiK – Kunst i kontekst) invites scholars, artists and art educators to the first Arts in Context conference. Arts in Context is a platform for scholarly and artistic research within – and across – the disciplines of music, theatre and the visual arts with a particular interest in how art disciplines respond at points of contact with other contexts, whether social, cultural, political, pedagogical or historical.
Arts in Context aims to establish arenas where artistic practices can interact with academic approaches to research and development. Such research projects operate at the dynamic interface between theoretical, empirical and artistic-practice approaches. Art disciplines are approached in a broad context, where specialist knowledge is understood not just as content but also as perspectives that enable researchers to rethink established paradigms and identify change and new relationships, both within the arts and in society more generally.
