We are developing and executing the HKU pre-PhD programme in consultation with four professorships within HKU:
- Research in Creative Practices (concluded)
- Interactive Narrative Design (concluded)
- Art and Professionalisation
- Performative Making Processes
We accommodate the selected research projects within the professorships, in order to achieve optimal institutional embedding. We also work with various local and international knowledge institutions:
- University of Humanistic Studies
- University of Utrecht
- Basis voor Actuele Kunst (Basis for Contemporary Art)
- European Artistic Research Network (EARN)
- Uniarts Helsinki
- University College London
- Valand Academy (Gothenburg)
- NIDA (PhD Summer School)

From 2006 to 2014, Henk also worked as an Artistic Research lecturer. In that position, he focused primarily on the (international) debate on practice-based PhDs.
Over the past ten years, Henk Slager has made a leading contribution to the international debate on Artistic Research. In his role as Dean of the MaHKU, he has developed experimental, research-oriented educational programmes. As Professor, he has worked on publications (including MaHKUzine.
