Advice on your application materials:

Digital portfolio of artistic work - What you have already done

Please focus on completed artistic works and make a clear, edited selection that is relevant to your research proposal. Time-based fragments (audio or video) can be shared via links in this PDF file. In the initial selection round, we will not listen to more than 10 minutes of time-based files, so please edit accordingly and make smart decisions about which clips you want the committee to watch and/or listen to.

File specifications: PDF, ideally less than 20 pages

What do you intend to explore in your studies, and how?

Tell us about the work in your portfolio, what your key interests are, and how you intend to pursue these in the coming two years.
Be specific. Write about the topic, why you are interested, and how you will approach this as an artistic research project.

File specifications: PDF, max 400 words

Please include your previous education, English proficiency tests if you have them, and a list of exhibitions, events, publications, grants, prizes, nominations, and any other information you think is relevant to your application.
