Our programme is built around your practice and intensive residencies which offer opportunities to meet other established international artists, curators and writers.

Participate in annual international intensives, retreats and pop-up events, attend monthly translocal weekend sessions, presentations, symposia, fora, colloquia, research seminars and topical workshops, screenings, cultural excursions, talks, and peer presentations.

Transart provides a unique entwinement of live and translocal intensives and academic support. Work independently with dedicated advisors and develop your independent creative praxis alongside other international advanced practitioners.

Low-residency Practice PhD
Our Practice PhD is for everyone with a specific research project or question/s they want to examine in order to bring their creativity to the highest level. The Creative Research PhD is self-directed, creative project-based research, to which writing is an integral contributor, culminating in the submission of a thesis, which may include a presentation, an exhibition, a publication, reading, performance, screening, or other forms of dissemination. In this creative research doctoral program, your creative work is the research.

Check out our 2021 Translocal Intensives and public talks.

About Transart
Transart Institute is a space for experimentation and thinking in any form, for sharing and connecting, and offering practice-based doctoral studies in a low-residency model. We champion self-directed, curious, flexible and independent-minded creative researchers working solo and/or collectively.

Our border-free platform attracts an eclectic international body of students and advisors from equally diverse artistic and academic contexts and geographic locations as part of a global, transdisciplinary research community; creating opportunities to expand, enhance and sustain individual and collective practices in the world, beyond the walls of the academy.
