Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
The deadline for the Call for Papers is 31 January 2013.
We are interested in papers from the fields of jewellery and metalsmithing that explore the links between individuals and communities, both real and virtual, through participation and exchange.
The conference theme has been chosen to specifically focus on collective participation and inspirational initiatives in contemporary practice.
We want papers that explore, investigate, uncover or expose participation and or exchange in practice within the fields of jewellery and metalsmithing. Approaches for this may include but are not limited to:
1. Individuals and communities facilitating exchange of ideas, innovative models of interaction, cross cultural collaboration, experimentation and the development of strong networks.
2. Participation through dialogue, action and initiatives, activities to motivate change, to shift ideas or ideals.
3. The increasing relevance (or irrelevance) of online communities for contemporary practice. Do online communities enhance practice possibilities or do they take us away from real time in the studio?
4. Historical, contemporary or future contexts of practice. What has changed, what is new?
