Practice PhD
In partnership with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), our Creative Research PhD is a self-directed research project to which writing makes an integral contribution. Your work will culminate in a submitted thesis, including a presentation, exhibition, publication, reading, performance, screening, or other form of dissemination and a Viva Voce. In this innovative Doctoral program, your creative practice entwines with writing and reflection to become rigorous and original research - in short, your practice is the research.

Nomadic low-residency
Participate in monthly intensives; peer-research clusters; critique groups and engage with international faculty, guests and advisors. Attend optional micro-residencies in New York, Liverpool, Berlin or Mexico City. Connect with LJMU’s Exhibition Research Lab, City Lab, Experimental Technologies Lab and Contemporary Art Lab, the Liverpool Biennial, TATE Liverpool and so much more.

Expansive, interdisciplinary approach
Transart creative researchers think and work across and through diverse practices, research constellations, theoretical concerns and ways of knowing. We support innovative research from within and beyond the arts or at the intersection of multiple fields, practices and territories.

Ongoing collaborative possibilities
Transart has been developing a global network of institutions in multiple countries for nearly eighteen years. Students, professors, guests, alumni and advisors have successfully launched sustainable international relationships and projects through shared research, long-standing critique groups, exhibitions, symposia, screenings, publications and performances.
