The Orpheus Doctoral Conference 2018 Dissolving Borders: Musical Migration / Migratory Musicking took place at the Orpheus Institute 18 - 19 April and was a great success. There were nine presentations and two keynote speakers: Prof. Dr. Jin-Ah Kim and Jordi Savall.
The docARTES intro session in March took for the first time place at the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts in Leiden. The docARTES students were also joined by the researchers from the PhD programme in visual arts and design (PhDArts).

Full-time Doctoral researcher in Artistic Research in Music who will be a team member of the research cluster MusicExperimentX at the Orpheus Institute while pursuing a docARTES doctoral degree.
Application deadline: December 12, 2017
We welcome six new doctoral students who will start the docARTES programme. They were selected out of 35 applicants. The group is again very international with five different nationalities.
In 2017 docARTES launched its new website with improved functionality, design and navigation. The website also contains new sections and updated content.
In February 2017 docARTES students will organize their yearly conference. The Orpheus Doctoral Conference 2017, Traditions-Transitions, will explore how different modes of relationships between past and present affect musical performance practice and composition. Further, practitioners and researchers from the fields of music and social sciences will draw on Eric Hobsbawm’s notion of “invented traditions”, examining how traditions are forged, broken or interrupted and how they might be used as sources of renewal.
A new docARTES booklet has been published!
2014 marked the 10th anniversary of the docARTES programme. In November 2014 we celebrated this decade of partnership and passionately working together to prepare doctoral students for artistic research and to foster a professional research culture.
