Our project is directly linked to the DMAD, the PhD in Digital Media Arts by Universidade Aberta and Universidade do Algarve. This PhD covers a broad spectrum of action: investigation, education, artistic development, technologies and communication, implementing experimental, multicultural and interdisciplinary processes in the framework of an innovative practice based research model.
The course aims at training professionals in digital media arts for the more diverse working areas, be it in research, education and artistic, technological and communicational development, with solid skills in computer technologies, communication sciences and artistic and intercultural intervention; capable of assuming the leadership of experimental/research-action projects of artistic and intercultural intervention, either individual or collective, covering the development of new applications, products and aesthetic narratives. These professionals will assume duties as managers of research projects, in education and of development and creation of new highly innovative aesthetics discourses that strongly exploit the informative and sensory expressiveness of multimedia contents, technological interfaces and interaction, aiming at constructing interventional artefacts for the creative industry, in the artistic and cultural expression, education and entertaining.
