In order to disseminate research at the Academy, it is documented and made publicly available through the Cristin and Khioda databases, an annual research week, various lectures, and public defences of doctoral dissertations.

The library at KHiO is an academic and research library that covers the disciplines of fine art, design, art and craft, dance, opera and theatre. The library disseminates knowledge about KHiO’s disciplines and is open to all parties.

Artistic Research Week

The Artistic Research Week is a venue for sharing research within the subject area of the Arts. It features an extensive programme of national and international speakers, seminars and round-table discussions.

KHiO’s academic staff participate actively, present ongoing research projects, and share their experiences from artistic research.

Moreover, the various departments at KHiO have their own venues for sharing knowledge in close collaboration with their various artistic and academic communities.

Seminars and lectures

KHiO organises seminars and also sets up a number of academic lectures every year.

The lectures are delivered by either KHiO’s own academic staff or external guest lecturers. The aim of these open lectures is to spread knowledge and stimulate artistic research within higher education. In conjunction with the lectures, discussions are often organised on topics that concern various areas of specialisation within a given discipline.

The lectures often take place in connection with supervision of the students’ work and their experimentation with artistic methods, or in connection with a given research publication, research project or exhibition.

The academic lectures may take place under a variety of names, such as lecture, lesson, talk, address or doctoral defence.

A complete list of previous lectures is available in the Academy’s  annual rapports and in the events calendar.
