The Social Justice and Diversity in the Arts research group aims to contribute to knowledge development around social justice within artistic practice, education and research, both within the AHK and beyond.
The research group is led by Aminata Cairo and Rosa te Velde. Together with students and researchers, they will initiate, develop and conduct practice-based research that contributes to the realisation of inclusive arts education, arts education and an inclusive and equitable arts and culture sector.
The lectorate pursues three major research themes:
1. Social justice issues as defined and expressed by the larger community
2. Giving voice and strength to students in their pursuit of social justice
3. How to engage in and promote research methodology that involves artistic practice, embodied learning and contributes to social justice
