Stockholm University of the Arts will, through its pioneering educational environment and innovative research, increase the power of the arts. A leading Arts University, we address and confront the challenges of society today.


In order to realise this vision, we will build a unified community that encourages responsible artistic and creative boldness. We will:

  • train the next generation of leading artists, researchers and educators - our alumni will actively influence the future of the arts
  • develop experimental, innovative and collaborative artistic research environments where art forms are strengthened and the dialogue around the arts and education is reinforced
  • contribute to active dialogue with the wider society underpinned by a cutting edge artistic foundation
  • create a collaborative culture based on a strong sense of inclusivity, responsibility, trust and commitment, where differences are embraced
