Call for Submissions
Political Animal - Art Writing Constructing the Contemporary City

Thu 2 May — Sun 2 June 2019

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

BarCamp: Saturday 22 June 2019, 2pm

Political Animal is an interdisciplinary cultural event which explores how the contemporary city can be written, curated, performed and (re)built. Through talks, presentations, exhibitions and assemblies, questions around the roles of the collective and the individual in the operations of the city will be raised and discussed.

Instead of the usual closing remarks, the end of this event will take the shape of a BarCamp. BarCamp is an open, participatory workshop-event, the content of which is provided by the participants themselves. It is an intense event with discussion and interaction between attendees. Unlike the traditional conference format, BarCamps have a self-organising character, infused with the passion and the responsibility of the participants.

We are looking for proposals from anyone who would like to attend the event and make use of the BarCamp. This could be a talk, a workshops or simply a paper to be made available during Political Animal. Any public activity led by individuals or groups who would like to contribute to address the general public or communities would be welcome and supported by Political Animal within the limitation of our resources and financial capabilities. Please send proposals consisting of 250 words to politicalanimal2018@gmail.com by Sunday 2 June 2019, 5pm.
