ArtEZ University of the Arts
ArtEZ University of the Arts is one of the largest art academies in the Netherlands. ArtEZ offers bachelor and master programmes in the fields of visual art, fashion, design, architecture, music, dance and theatre. Its broad range of courses offers scope for multidisciplinary collaboration. The university has approximately 3000 students and 900 lecturers and other staff. Education is provided in Arnhem, Enschede and Zwolle. The Executive Board and the supporting services are concentrated in Arnhem.

APRIA (ArtEZ Platform for Research Interventions in the Arts) is an online platform that curates a peer-reviewed journal (APRIA journal) and publishes high-impact essays, image and sound contributions that examine art and interventions of the arts in relation to science and society, and that encourage dialogue around themes that are critical and urgent to the futures that we will live in.

APRIA was built and launched over a year ago and has a good, solid foundation and inspiring content, but now is the time to expand, build and prepare APRIA for the future. We aim to establish more connections with external parties to enlarge our network. Building a strong community of interested readers, authors and researchers will help to give the research that comes out of ArtEZ a recognizable and solid place in the world of art research, and will help to emphasise the connection between science and art. APRIA is the responsibility of ArtEZ Press and ArtEZ Studium Generale.
