The conference will provide an opportunity for artists and those who support the arts in a myriad of ways â€“ from scholars, critics, producers and designers to policy-makers, industry and government â€“ to engage in interdisciplinary dialogue about issues associated with the creation of environmentally sustainable arts practice and performance.
The conference committee welcomes proposals for papers that consider the relationship between the cultural and ecological aspects of sustainability in the arts, and may encompass aspects of subjectivity with respect to community and identity.
Please forward a 250-word abstract of your proposal, including your name, affiliation, mailing and email address to:
Ina Agastra, Executive Assistant to the Dean
Faculty of Fine Arts, York University
Submission deadline: September 1, 2010
