Call for Performance Proposals

Interrogations: Creative Interdisciplinarity in Art and Design Research

AHRC Postgraduate Conference, De Montfort University & Loughborough University,
 1st and 2nd July 2009, Loughborough University, School of Art and Design

The conference addresses various aspects of interdisciplinary approaches in
Art & Design research, as well as practical and theoretical methods for
interlinking with other disciplines. The objective is to explore
interdisciplinarity as a new trend that brings together different
disciplines, forging new connections and contributions to collective
knowledge. Ultimately, the aim is to promote and encourage
interdisciplinarity as a way to enhance creativity in research.

This conference aims to address the challenges and trends of
interdisciplinary research that contributes to art and design. We are
inviting performance proposals as part of the conference programme, as well
as formal presentations (deadline 16th of January). It is hoped that the
performance event will embrace an eclectic mix of works communicated
through a variety of forms: any visual, sound, spoken word, music, short
plays, dance, design, film, multi media, digital projects and other
performance medium or methods of expression involving interdisciplinarity
as a way of transferring ideas and stimulating creativity across disciplines.

The event will take place on the first day of the conference, after the
sessions. Limited sound equipment as well as video and slide projectors are
available. Artists are responsible for installing and removing their
performance materials on the day of the performance. Each performance
running time will be 25 minutes.
If you would like to be considered, please send a proposal, one page
maximum description of your idea, including your contact information, a
brief description of the performance, special equipment or space needed.
The proposal should detail the project, its production, how it engages
participants and any technical requirements. Please be as specific as
possible. You may submit your proposal via email or digitally on Compact
