Research session | 26 NOV


Research and teaching in art from a practical perspective is becoming a field of study and work that attracts an increasing number of not only artists but also teachers and researchers from different fields, academic and artistic. The concept of art-based research It is a global term that presents different approaches related to artistic creation from its practical base as a research method and as a teaching methodology. This methodology aims to understand artistic practice in its multiple manifestations as a method of creation but also of research and training. Present in a multitude of disciplines such as writing, performing arts, music or audiovisuals, the idea of art-based research it is increasingly present in those institutions that have made the arts the center of their creative and teaching practice.

These Conferences that we are now launching between the University Institute of Educational Sciences (IUCE) and the University School of Arts TAI They aim to bring us closer to those needs, intuitions but also challenges that we as teachers and creators face in our usual practice with special attention in educational contexts. This interdisciplinary event aims to bring together those interested in both research and training in the field of Art-based research.
