About the Programme

The UmArts programme strengthens and develops the artistic research environment at Umeå University, nationally and internationally, to address urgent societal and environmental concerns. Interdisciplinary research themes provide starting points for discussion and research, including the Commons, Planetary Care, Nuclear Anthropocene, and Decolonisation. The programme includes a range of research activities including interdisciplinary working groups, research seminars, symposia, field research reading groups and exhibitions. In 2024 UmArts is hosting the Vetenskapsrådet Artistic Research Symposium.
