Orpheus Institute has been providing Postgraduate Education (laureate programme) for musicians since 1996 and introduced the first doctoral programme for performers and composers in Flanders (2004).
Acting as an umbrella institution for Flanders it is co-governed by the music and dramatic arts departments of all four Flemish colleges, which are strongly involved in its working.
Orpheus Institute also addresses the music scene as a whole by organising seminars, lectures, workshops, conventions and master classes about subjects related to artistic research, musical practice, artistic testimonials, etc. Most events involve top-notch national and international musicians, artists and researchers from various disciplines.
In addition to postgraduate education, the Orpheus Institute provides an open international forum for research in music, in an environment that nourishes innovation and creativity in music, paired with the extension of knowledge and artistic understanding. Orpheus Institute supports individual artist-researchers, generates artistic outcomes and publications, organizes conferences, workshops and seminars and promotes collaborative research projects across disciplines, institutions and national boundaries. Orpheus Institute launched its own Research Centre in Music in May 2007.
The Orpheus Research Centre in Music [ORCiM] focuses on practice-based research in music and addresses discipline-specific questions. By explicitly laying the foundations for this artistic research discipline, thereby developing the tools necessary for artistic research of the highest standard, ORCiM assumes a unique role in the world of research and higher education of music.
