Multiplier Seminar for Doctoral Supervisors in Artistic Research

'Feed-back, Feed-forward: Approaches to artistic feedback in doctoral supervision' took place from 25-26 November 2020 as an online event hosted by the Orpheus Institute, Ghent. Doctoral supervisors from all artistic research areas were invited to explore artistic feedback approaches and experience, through online presentations, workshops and discussions led by experts in the field.

The multiplier seminar shared the intellectual outputs of The Art of Feedback, workpackage in phase #03 Improving Practices of the Erasmus Plus Strategic Partnership Project Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates.

Around 60 Supervisors from 23 countries were virtually welcomed by Jonathan Impett (Director of Research at Orpheus Institute) and Michaela Glanz (project coordinator, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna). Following the welcome word, Christina Stabourlos (social scientist at Orpheus Institute) shared the outcomes of the qualitative research project in the frame of workpackage The Art of Feedback.

Feed-back, Feed-forward: Approaches to artistic feedback in doctoral supervision addressed the need for specific supervisory training in the area of artistic feedback. Three supervisors shared their approaches and insights of supervising doctoral candidates in different art fields, giving food for thought and discussion amongst the participants. These supervision conversations were initiated by Simon Waters (Queen’s University Belfast, UK), Christel Stalpaert (Ghent University, BE) and Janneke Wesseling (Leiden University, NL).

On the second day of the multiplier seminar, the supervisors were invited to share experiences and challenges in giving feedback on artistic work in supervision situations. Workshops led by Morten Riis (Aarhus University, DK), Heloisa Amaral (Royal Conservatory of The Hague, NL) and Vida Midgelow (Middlesex University, UK) highlighted different approaches to the process of artistic feedback in doctoral supervision.
