VI Art of Research conference will be held on 29-30 November 2017 at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Helsinki, Finland.

Over the past two decades, the Art of Research conferences have had a significant role in promoting continuous dialogue and fruitful convergence between art- and design-related research practices. The conferences have contributed to the development of rapidly growing and spreading contemporary discourse on artistic and practice-led research – while acknowledging and engaging in multiple notions of research where diverse modes of creative practice are used as catalysts for enquiry.

The theme of this sixth Art of Research conference addresses the agency of the artist-researcher as a catalyst that challenges established ideas and produces new thinking through artistic and practice-led research.
