Located in the heart of the University Grenoble Alpes, the Maison de la création is a French research centre (structure fédération de recherche) which fosters the experimentation and development of practice led, praticed based and research-creation approaches. Its scientific profile is based on five main themes in the areas of artistic and creative practice and production:
Experimentation of new languages, forms and practices
Analysis of processes and practices
Historical and temporal studies
Critical observations and reflexive approaches regarding socio-cultural factors
Critical perspectives and implications of territorial and political issues
The Maison de la création initiated by the LITT&ART UMR CNRS laboratory coordinates the activities of eleven research laboratories working in the fields of the arts, literature, computer science, languages and humanities. All of the various projects which benefit from the support of the Maison de la création aim at leading to interdisciplinary synergies exploring the links between practice, theory, research and education.
