Call for Artists
On the occasion of 4th International Conference on Time Perspective in Nantes France (August 27-31), we are calling on artists to expose visual or performing art productions that explore the concept of time.
Any aspect of time can be brought to light, be it timing, passing of time, space and time, time in daily life, time across cultures, waiting in time, gaining time, being in time, memory, past, present, future, tea-time… Anything time related fits into this broad call.
Our credo is that the concept of time can bridge gaps between disciplines and between scientific research and concrete action.
Following in the footsteps of our last conference in Copenhagen, our frame shifting event format pulls academia and art together.
We aim to open the minds of scientists by exposing them to art, and to open up the mind of artists towards what researchers do.
Accordingly, we encourage Artists who present their work to attend the scientific part of our conference if they so desire free of charge.
All art forms are welcome.
- poets -
- improv groups -
- theater groups -
- comic artists -
- musicians -
- graphic artists -
- photographers -
- painters -
- sculptors -
- video producers -
Are heavily encouraged to present their work.
What we have to offer
Though we cannot pay artists to attend, we provide them with an engaged international audience and media coverage.
Artists who attend the conference are free to join the academic folk at meal and coffee breaks. In some cases, we provide accomodation.
In all cases, we provide technical support and a warm welcome.
This event provides a refreshing ambiance to artists and academics alike.
To get an idea, here is a short video that was made after the last event in Copenhagen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwEHDuNptbQ
