Call for proposals: Arts Activated Conference 2012
The Arts Activated Conference 2012 is the perfect opportunity to bring together the growing culture of inclusive Arts in Australia. Planned for October 2012, its time to start thinking about how you can be involved. The call for proposals for papers, performances or workshops that address the Arts Activated Conference theme Desire and Destination is now open.
Keynotes from international artists Kiruna Stamell UK (Moulin Rouge, East Enders, Cast Offs) and Petra Kuppers US (Find a Strange and Twisted Shape, Somatic Engagement, The Scar of Visibility) will set a vibrant stage for the Arts Activated Conference.
"We're looking to develop a diverse program that spans many aspects of access to the Arts, including current themes in our culture such as new technology in the Arts and person-centred approaches for people with disability. We will accept proposals in written, audio or video formats to make the submission process as accessible as possible and to encourage people with disability to apply as well as collaborative proposals that involve people with disability. We invite everyone to consider presentations about past experience and future aspirations of inclusive practices in the Arts," said Amanda Tink, Conference Convenor.
