The University of Iceland is among the beneficiaries of the European Training Network FEINART – “The Future of European Independent Art Spaces in a Period of Socially Engaged Art” which is offering 11 Early-Stage Researcher (ESR) positions.
FEINART is an ambitious interdisciplinary doctorate research programme funded by the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) Action. Successful candidates will undertake a 3-year doctoral programme in the area of socially engaged art, with positions starting preferably in October/November 2020. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2020.
Socially engaged art aims to create social and political change through forms of interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange between artists, individuals, communities, and institutions; the emphasis being on learning through participation and collective research. FEINART is the first major training programme to provide support for the investigation of the prospects and conditions of these kinds of work in Europe today.
