CFP: Arts Conference 2011


The Sixth International Conference on the Arts in Society 2011 will be
held at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities,
Berlin, Germany from 9-11 May 2011.

The 2011 Arts Conference will address a range of critically important
issues and themes relating to the arts in society. Plenary speakers
will include leading thinkers and practitioners in the arts, as well
as paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by researchers and
practitioners in all fields of artistic engagement.

We invite prospective participants to submit a presentation proposal
for one of the following parallel session options: a 30-minute paper;
a 60-minute workshop; a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium
session; or a virtual session. We also encourage innovative
presentation formats, such as roundtables, staged dialogues,
screenings and performances. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped
into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each
stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for focused
discussion of issues and Conference themes.

Conference presenters may include contributors in all areas of the
arts – artists, educators, graduate students, curators, writers,
theorists, researchers, arts administrators and policymakers – with
presentations in all disciplines (visual, performing, literary, and
interdisciplinary genres). This is a Conference for any person with an
interest in and a concern for art practice, public art, art theory,
research and policy, curatorial and museum studies, and art education
in any of its forms and at any of its sites.

Participants may choose to submit written papers before or after the
Conference for possible publication in the peer reviewed The
International Journal of the Arts in Society. Virtual participants
also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the
Journal. All registered Conference participants receive a
complimentary online subscription to the Journal when registration is
finalized. This subscription is valid until one year after the
Conference end-date.

The Arts Conference is held annually in different international
locations in conjunction with global and local arts events. The
inaugural Conference was held in conjunction with the Edinburgh
Festivals, Edinburgh, Scotland in 2006, and in 2007, in collaboration
with the Documenta12, Kassel, Germany. The 2007 International
Symposium on the Arts was held during the Armory Show in New York and
in co-sponsorship with the Center for Art and Public Policy, Tisch
School of the Arts, New York University. In 2008, the Conference was
held at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, Birmingham City
University, Birmingham, UK, with a special theme of Art and
Communication. In 2009 the Conference was held in Venice, Italy in
conjunction with the Venice Biennale, and in 2010 the Conference was
held at University of Sydney, Sydney College of the Arts, Australia.
