2022 a2ru National Conference

a2ru 2022 National Conference: Exploring Artistic Research
November 3-5
University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, Michigan


As an a2ru member institution, UGA students, faculty, and staff are eligible for reduced registration rates.

The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) national conference will take place from November 3-5, 2022, on the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus. This will be an in-person conference, though we anticipate remote attendance will be an option for many sessions.

The a2ru national conference is an opportunity for practitioners and researchers from across the higher education spectrum to share innovations and perspectives in the arts. a2ru advances the full range of arts and design integrative research, curricula, programs, and creative practice to acknowledge, articulate, and expand the vital role of higher education in our global society. a2ru’s work, in partnership with an international network of leading higher education institutions, envisions a world in which universities—students, faculty, and leaders—explore, embed, and integrate the arts in everyday practice and research.
