Next Doors is an interdisciplinary project week organised by and for students. You spend a week working together within artistic projects. You can choose to set up your own project or participate in someone else's project.
Four times a year an Open Stage takes place for students and guests. This student-led initiative is an opportunity to share your work at any stage of development.
The bachelor Dance programme is engaged in the research, practice and development of diversity and inclusive practice within contemporary dance training and performing arts. LABO Inclusion Dance brings you together on a weekly basis with guest dancers with diverse abilities, backgrounds, culture and practice, for exchange, training and creation. In addition, symposia, workshops and study days are organised around specific themes, in which you collaborate with organisations and artists from the artistic social field.
The Royal Conservatoire Antwerp houses several research groups with active researchers in all disciplines with a diverse and broad research base. Each year the research department organises Articulate, a festival where ongoing research practices are shared through lectures, workshops, and performances.
We care about health and helping our students build sustainable careers. This is why we are committed to both physical and mental prevention and guidance. You are in good hands is an initiative of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. The Department of Applied Psychology and the Royal Conservatoire of the Antwerp University College (AP Hogeschool) created an evidence-based prevention programme for the challenges of artistic practice. More information about the research and prevention programme can be found here.
The well-being of everyone - students, faculty and staff - is a priority concern at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. In order to monitor and promote this welfare, the Well-being Sounding Board Group was established. Anyone can become a member of this working group on their own initiative and take part in the meetings.
You will notice that the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp is a very international school, with many nationalities, cultures, and languages. Although studying in a multilingual environment can be challenging, it can also be very enriching personally, and on a professional level as the performing arts world is also very multilingual. We therefore encourage you to take every opportunity to learn and improve your language skills during your studies.
