ARIAS is a research platform supported by the Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK), Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (HvA), University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Vrije Universiteit (VU Amsterdam). ARIAS enables intersections, encounters and collaborations between artistic research and research in the humanities, social sciences and the natural sciences.

 

ARIAS is a research platform supported by the Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK), Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (HvA), University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Vrije Universiteit (VU Amsterdam). ARIAS enables intersections, encounters and collaborations between artistic research and research in the humanities, social sciences and the natural sciences. ARIAS’ main goals are to foster new collaborative research projects, to increase visibility and funding for research, to reach new audiences by exploring other ways of disseminating results and to open up new post-master research trajectories for research in, with and through the arts. By creating a space for experiment, ARIAS contributes to research in a distinct way. ARIAS aims to strengthen the interfacing of various research methods, highlighting particularly the combination of non-traditional ways of researching, such as design research, participatory research, speculative design, ‘research creation’, audio-visual research, curatorial research, performance research and action research with more established research methods. The collaboration between artistic research and other disciplines can sharpen debates, raise alternative research questions, offer sensorial insights and sketch speculative horizons. In this way ARIAS aims to contribute to urgent research questions, from healthcare, the urban environment and new forms of education, to the digital platform society, climate change and large-scale migration.
