Open Call

EARTHBOUND – The Multispecies Paradigm Shift – September 2018
Call for being part of our programme.

On the third day of the international and interdisciplinary symposium EARTHBOUND we wish to create a possibility for hands-on meetings between artists, and researchers of Science & Technology, or the Humanities.

We send out a call with the following set-up:
We invite you to prepare a 90 min. workshop led by two persons (originating from or active in each their field, as mentioned above) – where you each share your practice, and include time for response and debate with the participants (maximum 10-12 persons). The structure could be: A short intro, and some concrete work for the participants led by each person/host, followed by Q&A. But a more in-depth collaboration or testing of new formats etc., would be preferred.

There will be only three indoor spaces available, and 3-4 outdoor spaces, or sessions structured as walks in the local area.
It is preferred that the session can be held without any technical equipement in order to minimize the time and hazzle with preparations.
There will only be time for a limited amount of sessions, so we probably have to say no thanks to several good suggestions.

We do acknowledge the short time frame between this call and end-September. Our call is meant as a test of a format we want to work more in depth with prior to the ‘EARTHBOUND 2020’ that we wish to organize based on the knowledge we gather in 2018.
For this year, we hope that find your work-partner yourself. With the longer preparation time for our 2020-plans, we envision the possibility that we can help with pairing up.

Send a short information about your plans (700 words), and a short biog on each of you (400 words each) to Project Leader Anne Mette Laursen on info@secrethotel.dk before August 15th.
Notice that August 20th is our Early Bird-deadline for securing your place at the symposium.
Respond on your proposal will be given by September 10th.
