European Artistic Research Network (EARN) was established to share and exchange knowledge and experience in artistic research; foster mobility, exchange and dialogue among art researchers; promote wider dissemination of artistic research; and enable global connectivity and exchange for artistic research.
EARN operates through a variety of means including regular international working-group meetings, workshops, seminars, symposia, conferences, winter/summer-school programmes, exhibitions, and publications.

SHARE Step-change in Higher Arts Research and Education
Several EARN partners – Helsinki, Vienna, Utrecht, Gothenburg, Dublin, Brussels, and Venice – have initiated a new collaboration with ELIA, EUFRAD and other higher arts education institutions across Europe to explore the development of the "3rd Cycle" – doctoral level – creative arts research and education. The "Step-change for Higher Arts and Research Education" (SHARE) project brings together established and emergent doctoral programmes across the arts.
The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is a new international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal for the identification, publication and dissemination of artistic research and its methodologies. With the aim of displaying and documenting practice in a manner that respects the artist's modes of presentation, JAR abandons the traditional journal article format and offers its contributors a dynamic online canvas where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. The result is a journal which provides a unique ‘reading’ experience while fulfilling the expectations of scholarly dissemination. The inaugural issue of JAR was released on 17 February 2011.
Changing Identities and Contexts in the Arts (CICA) is a collaborative EU-project with partners that include three EARN members - Helsinki, Gothenborg and Leeds - as well as several other agencies.
CICA examines artistic and arts research and changes in the identity of the European artist. CICA is coordinated by the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts and other partners of the project are the Community Relations and Development unit of the Finnish National Gallery, The University of Gothenburg, Göteborgs konsthall, The University of Leeds, the Henry Moore Institute and Project Space Leeds.

Shifting Dialogues: Research Project on Asian Performance and Fine Arts
Shifting Dialogues: Asian Performance and Fine Arts is a joint research project between Theatre Academy Helsinki and Academy of Fine Arts (AAPC, Asian Art and Performance Consortium).
The project is funded by Academy of Finland in 2011-14 and lead by Professor Esa Kirkkopelto from Theatre Academy Helsinki. Research fellows are Ray Langenbach, Jukka O. Miettinen, Stefan Kuzay and Anna Thuring and doctoral students Maya Tångeberg-Grischin, Jay Koh, Mikko Bredenberg and Shoji Kato.
The Doctoral Programme in Artistic Research enables students to address and explore the following three broad themes in artistic research: Methodology and practices of artistic research; Art, aesthesis and society; and New artistic agency. Themes. It encourages students to assume responsibility for the development and future of the field through their own research. Each doctoral student selected for the programme will work on the common and shared issues associated with the programme within the context and scope of their own research. Plans for a shared future are made through cooperation and discussion between doctoral graduates, researchers, teachers and various specialists. The outcomes will include not only new degrees and researchers, but also methodologies, practices, academic pedagogies and assessment criteria for artistic research as well as expertise on the interaction between art and society.
The Doctoral Programme in Artistic Research is a joint project of the three faculties within the University of Arts Helsinki, Theatre Academy Helsinki, the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, the Sibelius Academy; and the Aalto University School of Art and Design.
It is the first joint doctoral programme of Finnish art universities that focuses solely on artistic research and explores artistic practices, thinking and observation.
The four-year programme begun in January 2012 and will end in December 2015.

The Third International Summer Academy for Artist Research will take place in Finland 31.7-8.8.2014. The aim of SAAR is to discuss in depth participants’ doctoral projects within the developing discourses of art practice and research. SAAR 2014 will be a Nordic event as Doctoral Students from Finland, Sweden and Norway are invited in a closed call to the event.
The Summer Academy provides a supportive setting where artist-researchers from all fields collaborate, present their ongoing artistic work and research and receive feedback from experienced tutors and peers from leading academic institutions. The academy aims to reflect the international diversity and scope of artistic research and to provide a stimulating intellectual environment. It seeks to clarify, discuss and develop further emerging themes and issues arising out of the individual doctoral projects of the participants within the framework of artistic research.
