Learning outcomes

After taking this course, students will be able to

- discuss and analyze the possibilities and limitations of arts-based approaches to social change

General description


The Art/Research Festival examines the ways in which the arts and arts-based research can be incorporated to qualitative inquiry in social sciences. The festival examines how the artistic process, actual making of artistic expressions or artworks themselves can offer a way to understand and examine social and political life.

The focus of the festival is migration. Presentations, panels, performances and workshops approach the movement of people through different forms of expression. The festival asks how art can help researchers make sense of migration – and what are its limits.
