FEINART is an ambitious Innovative Training Network supported by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions of Horizon 2020 led by the University of Wolverhampton, committed to providing high quality training for 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) for the completion of PhD study in the area of art and social engagement
This is the first EU funded network to provide a wide-ranging academic and non-academic training programme for the development and production of social engaged art in Europe. It will co-ordinate data gathering and an extensive range interdisciplinary approaches to the critical analysis of the contemporary role, impact, and networks of distribution of socially engaged art. As such, it represents a major opportunity for the development of new research into the support and dissemination of socially engaged art, with important implications for the future public funding of the independent arts sector. It, therefore, it will be an invaluable contribution to the continuing debate on art, democracy and the public sphere, beyond the museum’s traditional functions.
