Founded in 2016, Nottingham Forum for Artistic Reserach (NottFAR) is an ongoing programme of new music concerts, events and outreach initiatives curated by University of Nottingham practice led researchers in music Elizabeth Kelly, Duncan MacLeod, and Xenia Pestova Bennett.

NottFAR offers a platform for composers, practitioners and technologists in the East Midlands to share their work which, through collaboration, offers something new, different, exciting and experiential for audiences. The primary aims of NottFAR are three-fold; to develop and share new music of this region through creative collaboration, to develop audiences, and to utilise practice-based music research to enhance learning outcomes in schools and professional practice in regional SMEs and community settings.
