Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates
The Orpheus Institute is inviting supervisors, artist-researchers and doctorates to share their experiences with giving and receiving artistic feedback, critiquing and discussing artistic elements in a doctoral context.
Why become a member of the CoP?
Supervisors of artistic doctorates rarely seem to receive specific training in how to establish a constructive environment and discourse in which to address the artistic work directly. Agreeing the parameters for meaningful critique – critique which is not based solely on a shared artistic language – is at the heart of this relationship, which touches on the most vital and vulnerable zone of artistic research.
For supervisors; have you found certain approaches and techniques useful when directly addressing the artistic elements presented by doctorates? Have you reflected on recurring issues?
Or are you looking for ways to improve your supervisory practice by learning from these examples and tailoring them to your own situation?
For artistic research doctorates; have you experienced certain approaches and techniques useful when presenting artistic material in the different stages of your PhD journey?
Or are you looking for ways to communicate your needs better?
