Seminar 6 is an extra seminar offered to research fellows that would like to meet physically to discuss their projects. Graduated research fellows are invited to share their experiences related to presenting the final artistic work and defending their project in the public Viva Voce.
There will also be plenty of time to discuss the fellow´s projects in informal conversations.
The seminar is open to all fellows participating in the Norwegian Artistic Research School. You do not have to have completed any of the other seminars to qualify for participation.
