Summer Academy for Artistic Research

Summer Academy for Artistic Research (SAAR) brings together artistic researchers and supervisors for an intense and stimulating week in August. The activities take different forms of conversation, supervision, and shared practices. The summer academy is based on the participants' projects and activities are centered around their projects as well as questions/thoughts generated by this specific context. 

About the Summer Academy

SAAR is a joint Nordic project between the partner countries Finland, Sweden and Norway. The SAAR network is coordinated by Uniarts Helsinki and governed by a joint Nordic Steering Group. 

The Nordic summer academy provides a supportive setting where PhD candidates and research fellows in artistic research from all fields collaborate, present their on-going artistic research and receive feedback from peers and experienced tutors from leading academic art institutions. The aim is to reflect the international diversity and scope of artistic research and to provide a stimulating intellectual environment.
