The Guildhall School launches a new doctoral research studentship in partnership with the Barbican Centre

GuildhallSchool Red

As part of the ongoing development of the research degree programme at the Guildhall School, 2016 sees the launch of a brand-new doctoral research studentship in partnership with the Barbican Centre. This unique studentship offers the opportunity to work full-time for three years on a research project in the Barbican, supported by a full doctoral fee-waiver and a maintenance grant. The initiative complements the School’s existing doctoral studentship in association with the Royal Opera House, and builds on a longstanding partnership between the Barbican and Guildhall School. The project will be supervised by a team of senior staff from the Guildhall School and the Barbican and supported by any necessary training.

The project will focus in the area of understanding audiences and investigate concepts of ‘audience experience’ in artistic contexts, with the precise title of the PhD to be negotiated with the successful candidate. It will explore relationships between individuals and not-for-profit corporate bodies from both perspectives, including engagement with the venue as a space and as an idea/ethos/brand. It will attempt to understand how that engagement translates into virtual spaces, including online. It will also assess critically how these things might most usefully be measured. The successful candidate will have the opportunity, potentially, to influence policy directly at one of the world’s landmark arts centres.
