Research and Artistic Development
Research and development activities at the Faculty of Fine Arts are connected to research, development and artistic performance in the areas of drama/theatre, music and arts and crafts.
The Faculty's academic staff are characterised by a twofold competence, encompassing both artistic and scientific skills. Artistic performance is the key focus area for many staff members, while other faculty have a strong expertise in didactics and education.
Through directed research and development activities, dissemination and artistic development work, the Faculty of Fine Arts will strengthen the quality of education in fine arts subjects, promote the unique character and potential of fine arts subjects, and contribute to critical reflection.
The Faculty of Fine Arts has a special responsibility for developing a good environment for research in the fine arts at the University of Agder. The Faculty deliberately seeks to relate many of its activities to the local community and aims to involve and include other cultural institutions in the Agder region in its research activities.
