19 Mar The European Conference on Arts & Humanities (ECAH2019)
Based on our super-successful experience last year at TransCultural Exchange’s 2018 International Conference on Opportunities in the Arts, Exploring New Horizons when we presented in “Artists as Agents of Change,” we have done more research on conference opportunities to present and share SQx’s socially conscious art-making strategies.
We are proud to announce that SQx will be presenting “Blended Value: Art as Social Enterprise” at The European Conference on Arts & Humanities (ECAH2019)
Place: Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront Hotel, Brighton, England
Dates: July 12 – 13, 2019
Conference Theme: Reclaiming Our Future
The organizers write, “Although we live in a time of great uncertainty and anxiety, inequality, and iniquity, we humans have an agency that drives us to improve our own lives and the lives of those around us. This conference invites us to consider the ways in which we contextualize and process the past, reimagining ourselves, our relationships, and our environments; driving positive change and reclaiming the future as a time we look towards with hope, and even optimism.”
Considering the poignant social statement, it is easy to see why our presentation on “Blended Value: Art as Social Enterprise” quintessentially reflects the goals of the event. At SQx, we use contemporary dance to make the world a better place and “improve the lives” of the communities in which we create and disseminate our work.
ECAH2019 encourage submissions that approach the “Reclaiming Our Future” theme from a variety of perspectives. Submissions are divided into a number of sub-categories but the ones that are most relevant to our work are:
- Teaching and Learning the Arts
- Arts Policy, Management and Advocacy
- Social, Political and Community Agendas in the Arts
- Performing Arts Practices: Theater, Dance, Music
- Media Arts Practices (Including Multimedia and Other New Media)
