Overall Theme 2006: ARTS OF ENGAGEMENT
‘Arts of Engagement’ emerged as this year’s conference theme as a broad way to think about how to link interdisciplinary forms of creative expression with social action and meanings. On the world stage, global systems of exchange and production are calling old structures into question, and forcing a re-evaluation of art world creations�hybridized, appropriated, traveled. As the visionaries of alternative ways of seeing and self-expression, artists and their works speak loudest to the pressing needs for social change, peace and justice, often paying a high personal and professional price for doing so. Addressing the broad themes below, we invite proposals from any one or combination of conference themes that bring the arts into contact with particular social and cultural flows.
