The EPARM 2014 Forum  will take place at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden, on 6-8 March. More information will be uploaded in January 2014.

The European Platform for Artistic Research Working Group:
Peter Dejans - Chair (Orpheus Institute Ghent)
Leonella Grasso Caprioli (Conservatorio di Vicenza)
Kevin Voets (Artesis Plantijn Hogeschool Antwerpen)
Henrik Frisk (Royal College of Music Stockholm)
Mirjam Boggasch (Musikhochschule Karlsruhe)

The EPARM working group works in cooperation with the Polifonia working group 2 on Artistic Research


The AEC preparatory working groups members work on the preparation of AEC events on voluntary basis. The AEC Preparatory Working Groups are all formed by coopting active individuals in the relevant field of specialization within AEC member institutions. Proactivity, as well as geographical and gender balances are the applied criteria to guarantee the diverse and dynamic character of the groups, who should ideally recreate the diversity of AEC members institutions.
Working group members are financially supported by their home institutions, which cover their travel and accommodation expenses to the working group meetings and to the actual event. 

EPARM Forum, Stockholm, March 2014

We are delighted to welcome you to the first EPARM Forum, being held in Sweden and hosted by the Royal College of Music (KMH) Stockholm.  The event has also been planned to coincide with the annual meeting of the Society for Artistic Research (SAR) and a key element of the programme will be a joint roundtable discussion with representatives from both EPARM and SAR.

The essence of the Forum model for AEC platform meetings is that it focusses on discussions, rather than presentations.  The idea is that themes identified in conferences will be given greater time for open debate, and that the alternating annual pattern of Conferences and Forums will enable the community that has formed around a platform to develop these themes more fully than is possible just within the conference format.  The scheme was pioneered with the Early Music Platform and is now being applied to EPARM.

Four major themes arising out of the EPARM meeting in Lyon in May 2013 have been identified, drawn both from the presentations and from the feedback provided by delegates.  They are as follows:
• Problems and solutions in developing methodologies for artistic research in music – sharing practical experiences
• Finding new knowledge and understanding in standard musical repertoire – which strategies for artistic research in music will strengthen its contribution beyond the sub-fields of contemporary and historically-informed performance?
• Research questions – what do these mean for artist-researchers in music and what kinds of answers may they be expected to generate?
• The outputs of artistic research in music – should they be judged both as artistic products and as contributions to knowledge and understanding and, if so, can we find some common ground as to the criteria to be used?

On the Thursday evening, 6th March, at 18:00, delegates will be asked to choose one of these four topics and join the discussion in the corresponding room.  This session will focus on setting the agenda for the main discussions that will follow.  Delegates will be invited to state which aspects of the theme are most relevant for them and moderators will use this information to draw up an agenda for each theme that will structure how it is dealt with.  Agendas for each of the four themes will be published by the morning of the 7th March.

Throughout the morning there will be two sessions, each of 1.5 hours, on each of the four themes operating in parallel sessions.  After lunch, delegates are invited to select one of the remaining three themes, other than the one they originally chose, and to attend the first of two sessions on that theme.  The second session will be held on the morning of the 8th March.

In this way, every delegate will have the opportunity to shape the agenda for one debate, participate in that debate and then participate in a second debate of their choosing.  We hope that this will produce a rich array of ideas and input with which to take these issues forward.

Theme for Roundtable discussion with SAR

On the afternoon of 7th March, EPARM delegates will join those attending the SAR annual meeting for a roundtable discussion on the following theme:
Islands and Bridges: how might we improve the connections between the disciplines of artistic research whilst preserving the uniqueness of each of their ‘habitats’, and what role do words play, either in uniting or dividing our various discipline-specific conceptions of artistic research?
