How can artistic research interact, adapt and contribute to the societal transformations of our time? Can artistic research practices inform and transform the work of cultural institutions and in the creative sectors of Trondheim? On the occasion of the 14th SAR conference on artistic research, NTNU, Trondheim Kommune and the University City TRD3.0 collaboration host a roundtable conversation with some of the key actors on local level.
Pier Luigi Sacco, senior adviser of the OECD and interim Policy Director of EIT Culture and Creativity, will discuss with Tor Grande, Pro-Rektor for Research at NTNU, and Ola By Rise, Head of Culture and Sports at Trondheim municipality. Moderated by Jacob Jessen, Head of NTNU’s Art Academy, the panel will include contributions by the Dean of the Faculty for Architecture and Design, Marianne Skjulhaug, and Anne Kristine Børresen, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities (tbc).
Ultimately, the conversation will investigate what kind of impact and value art and artistic research could offer to respond to challenges the municipality of Trondheim is facing. The aim is to identify the potential and concrete outcomes of linking artistic research and the operational level of policy making in a local context.
The conversation takes place in the video studio of the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. It is open and admission free to everyone who wants to participate. The video recording of the discussion will start at 1630 and will be published after the event.
