Paula Crabtree

Vice Chancellor
Stockholm University of the Arts
Stockholm, Sweden 

Since April 2014 I have held the position as Vice Chancellor at Stockholm University of the Arts in Sweden. Prior to this I was Rector at Bergen Academy of Art and Design (KHiB) in Norway (2010 – 2014) where I was also Dean at the Dept. of Fine Art (2002 to 2010). I am an artist and anthropologist. Originally from the UK, I am a Norwegian citizen and lived for 30 years in Norway before moving to Sweden.

In both of the institutions in Norway and Sweden my focus has been upon organisational development and building robust artistic research environments and, in each case, applying for and being awarded accreditation for 3rd cycle degrees.
I have been a member of the ELIA executive board since 2010 and Vice President since 2012. I have been actively involved in projects initiated within the auspices of ELIA since 2002 such as the Thematic Network Inter{artes and Artesnet.
Since 2008 I have been co-artistic director for NEU/NOW Festivals, which have been held in Vilnius, Nantes, Tallinn, Porto, Amsterdam, Glasgow and for the last two years Amsterdam.
I am a founding board member of EQArts  - trained international quality experts in higher arts education offering a critically supportive approach towards Quality Assurance and Enhancement for the Higher Arts Education sector.
Between 2009 and 2015 I was a member of the Austrian Advisory Board of the Programme for Arts-based Research (PEEK) - part of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).
