Call for Submissions for The Home and The World conference

19th-21st June 2012

Call for Submissions for The Home and The World conference:
on being at home
a summit for artists and other thinkers
19th-21st June 2012
Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon

Submissions and proposals are invited from artists and thinkers working within any discipline or from any background.  The organisers are seeking a broad mix of challenging ideas and submissions for this three-day summit, looking at the world and how we live in it; how we find our place – our home – and how we use creativity and the arts to ask questions, present problems, and offer up solutions, homages, and celebrations.

While formal paper presentations will be accepted, submissions which feature innovative, participatory, performative and/or interactive formats will be favoured.  Most sessions will be streamed live to the internet with live links to chat, Facebook and Twitter, and this is something you might choose to build into your proposal.  Presentations are limited to thirty minutes with a maximum of twenty minutes for presenting. There will be a limited number of breakout sessions, with the most inventive and challenging proposals grouped into 90-minute sessions.  The conference language is English.

At this stage the Conference is only asking for outline proposals. You do not need to submit a paper, although you can submit additional supporting materials in support of your abstract. Please don’t overwhelm them with unnecessary materials.

Deadline for submissions: 4:00pm, February 24th 2012.
The preliminary programme will be announced by March 9th.
Submissions will only be accepted online.
All presenters will be required to register.
Bursaries are available for presenters with no academic or organisational affiliation.
Early bird registration closes on March 30th.

The Home & The World is hosted by Aune Head Arts and The Arts at Dartington and is affiliated with the ‘Artful Ecologies’ series of conferences organised by RANE at University College Falmouth. Other supporting partners include CIWEM and CCANW.
