PhDArts offers an international, high-level doctoral programme in visual arts and design. Its goal is to stimulate and facilitate artist-researchers and to provide a suitable research environment. PhDArts is a collaboration between the Leiden University Academy of Creative and Performing Arts and the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. In research in and through artistic practice, the concepts of knowledge, meaning and sense are closely interwoven. The discursive, verbal component of research is important in gaining insight into and examining this knowledge. Research in art is characterized by interaction with artistic practice: it is an inseparable part of the work of the artist. The end result of the research is therefore an artistic product, combined with a discursive product, the dissertation, which does justice to the artistic one.

The doctoral study programme consists of research and training and allows doctoral students to develop their artistic qualities, broaden their academic knowledge, expand their methodological skills and integrate all those elements in order to be able to function as independent artist researchers. Besides the joint curriculum, the doctoral programme includes individual research supervision. Students will be awarded the doctoral title.
