Scene invites submissions for it’s special issue on: Scene on Sustainability – from any angle covered by the UN SDGs. (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/?menu=1300) and the
intersections of arts, design, performance and any aspects of the
creative and cultural industries.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve
a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the
global challenges we face, including those related to poverty,
inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and
peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no
one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target
by 2030.

Deadline: 15 January 2019.

Papers are invited for Scene, the journal from Intellect which explores all aspects of design contexts for live and recorded performance, giving special attention to the shaping of artistic vision, aesthetic sophistication, critical thinking and craft. Our remit covers the following: cinema, television, commercials, theatre, opera, musical, interior design, lighting design, costume design, theme parks, scenography, architecture, visual special effects, visual arts, virtual sets, multivision, location sets, games design and virtual environments, modes of spectating.

The journal incorporates investigations into the development of new technologies and modes of operating, distribution of content and profiles of design for film, television, theatre and events, as well as new platforms such as gaming and virtual environment design. We explore the understanding that the designer’s multifaceted contribution to a production involves much more than providing a visual background.

We also welcome reviews of new work, scholarship, criticism and exhibitions. We invite submissions of articles of 4,000-8,000 words from any discipline related to the topics outlined above.
