Apply now for MFA Performing Arts at the Iceland Academy of the Arts
This twelve-month Master programme is a question-led study that supports performance-related artists and art professionals to experiment and develop as practitioners and researchers through rigorous mentoring, extensive workshops and encounters with leading artists, thinkers and curators from around the world – as well as intensive peer-to-peer exchange.
There are two opportunities over the course of the year for applicants to apply.
The first runs from November 2017 to 22nd January 2018 and ensures applicants get an answer by March 2018.
This early application round is made available as an option, because it allows potential students more time to prepare for their arrival here in Iceland.

DEADLINE #1: 22ND JANUARY 2018.

This is a question-led study that strives towards strengthening your sense of the questions, goals and objectives that operate at the heart of your artistic practice.
Seminars and workshops that strengthen your capacity for conceptual developments, dramaturgical thinking, research planning and mapping – as well as artistic decision making.
Seminars, reading groups and workshops that strengthen your capacity for contextualising your artistic practice and research, as well as strengthen your attitude towards the kinds of conversations you want to be having in relation to your work. A heightened sense of how you want to facilitate those conversations – via which formats.
