F.A.R. (Future Arts Research)
F.A.R. represents a new model for arts institutions by supporting artists whose 'action research' generates new forms of knowledge. F.A.R. will introduce artistic exploration models to the university that complement the empirical, 'pure research' ones typical of research universities. F.A.R. will host leading national and international artists, critics and scholars each year who will conduct research in collaboration with departments within the university and work closely with the surrounding community.
