Betreff: [cec-c] Call for Contributions: Art and Sound Symposium 2017

DEADLINE EXTENDED FROM 19/3/2017 TO 7/4/2017



Theme: ‘Craft’
Venue: De Montfort University, Leicester

/Craft: Skill, expertise, mastery, talent, knack, flair, ability, artistry,
art, handicraft, handiwork, workmanship, technique/

Following a highly successful pilot, Art & Sound is happy to announce its
return on Friday 23rd June & Saturday 24th of June 2017. We welcome
contribution by academics and practitioners from across the arts, centring
around notions of ‘craft’. A focus is placed upon examples of craft
within music, sound and performance; however, it is an aim of the symposium
to bring together a range of art forms to explore cross-/inter-disciplinary

The areas of contribution indicated here are neither exhaustive, nor
prescriptive. But we challenge those submitting to find creative
alternatives to the traditional talk-focused symposium session.
Innovative — and achievable — ideas for the sharing of research and
artworks will be considered if outlined clearly and concisely.

The following areas for contribution are sought:
– Creative presentations on recent practice and research; including, but not
limited to, delivered talks, posters, and PechaKucha-style presentations;
– We welcome all art from all artistic disciplines, including:
– Site-specific work;
– Workshops;
– Galleries and installations;
– Sound-art and electroacoustic music
– Works in progress within the areas above can be considered

A number of workshops will also take place over the two days where delegate
participation is encouraged. These workshops will lead to creative events
scheduled for the Saturday evening that participants will be able to
perform in. More information will be released in due course.


Abstracts should be submitted electronically with a biography and contact
details to info@artandsoundsymposium.com by Sunday 19th of March 2017.

Abstracts should be a maximum of 400 words, with biographies no more than
100 words in length.

Proposals for artworks and installations must include precise technical
All artists are responsible for the setup of their own work. Our technical
support is limited so please factor this into your proposal.
