Uniarts Helsinki > Performance Philosophy Problems 2021: Call for Participation & BIPOC Bursary (Finland)

The fifth international Performance Philosophy conference will take place 9-12 June 2021. In addition to individual and panel presentations, the conference organisers invite participants for a new organisational model in which keynote speakers will be replaced by collective agencies: key groups (KGs).

The KGs will be created around a common problem. Each group may consist of artists, scholars, researchers, educators and other experts from within or outside academia. Already existing working groups, including those from other associations, are welcome to apply. The conference will facilitate the functioning of the KGs through a range of practical, financial, direct and in-kind support. In return, the KGs are expected to commit to working before, during and after the conference. The conference is also able to provide free and/or subsidised accommodation for a limited number of individuals or groups on the basis of need and is keen to meet the access needs of participants.

The Performance Philosophy network also invites applications from artists and scholars who identify as black, indigenous, and/or a person of colour for a £1000 (approx. $1300) bursary to participate in the biennial. This bursary will be transferred to the selected artist/scholar in January 2021 and can be used for any conference expenses at the discretion of the recipient. Receipt of the bursary does not prevent the artist/scholar from receiving other support from the conference for accommodation or access.

Deadline: 15 December 2020
