Head of Research Education, Camilla Damkjaer
Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts) provides education and conducts research in the fields of circus, dance, film, media, opera and performing arts. With our unique composition of education and artistic research, we want to create new opportunities for societal development and knowledge of tomorrow.
Stockholm University of the Arts was established in 2014 when DOCH the School of Dance and Circus, the University College of Opera, and the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts merged.
Artistic research programmes are a central part of Uniarts’s research environment. Developing artistic research education and providing artistic research programmes at a high level internationally are a part of Uniarts’s research strategy. By creating an active, critical and dynamic environment for research, we enable doctoral students to develop their work in a way that contributes to artistic research as a transdisciplinary field, to greater improvement in knowledge and expertise within different artistic fields, and to strengthening the link between research and the first-cycle programme.
