Call for Papers
Founded in 2000, the conference offers an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of the role of the arts in society. It is a place for critical engagement, examination and experimentation, developing ideas that connect the arts to their contexts in the world—on stage, in studios and theaters, in classrooms, in museums and galleries, on the streets, and in communities.
We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, colloquia, virtual posters, or virtual lightning talks. The conference features research addressing the annual themes and the 2018 Special Focus: “How Art Makes Things Happen—Situating Social Practice in Research, Practice, and Action”.

We welcome the submission of proposals at any time of the year. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission.
Please submit by June 1, 2018.
