Dear friends of the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme! 

This autumn marks 20 years since the establishment of the Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowship Programme and the Norwegian Academy of Music is celebrating its 50th anniversary. We mark the round days by organizing the Artistic Research Autumn Forum together with NMH. 


On Wednesday 25 October at 19:00 we invite you to a social gathering in the canteen at NMH. We will especially invite all former research fellows and board members of the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme and the Norwegian Artistic Research School. This is a great opportunity to meet former and recent fellows in artistic research, as well as board members being involved in establishment and development of the programme. You can expect refreshemnts and artistic happenings!


We need an overview of the expected number of participants at the event and therefore ask you to register here.


You can register for the whole conferene, or for the social gathering only. All partcipation is free of charge.
