In the coming years, major changes await the Academy of Music and Drama. Parts of our building Artisten will undergo renovation, and according to a proposal, other parts will be demolished to make room for a completely new building that will house both the Academy of Music and Drama and and HDK-Valand, placing the entire Faculty for Fine Applied and Performing Arts adjacent to Götaplatsen. The decision is expected from Rektor and the faculty's Dean by the beginning of 2021.
This construction process means that the Academy of Music and Drama will move its operations to several different premises, hence avoiding disturbance from by the construction work. With a few exceptions, these premises will all be located in central Gothenburg and be specially adapted to the business. The relocation is expected to take place in the summer of 2022. This means that those planning to study at the Academy of Music and Drama in the autumn semester of 2022 will begin their studies in premises other than the Artist.
The move in to the new premises will be done in steps, during the summers of 2024, 2025 and 2026.
