CREATION seeks contemporary collaborations

Research group CREATIE (Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, BEL) and Mixed Currents (CeReNeM, University of Huddersfield, UK) join forces in organizing Collaborations are More Refreshing than New Socks, a 3-day conference-festival about collaborations in contemporary performance (December 3-5 2019 in Antwerp). They will explore challenges and consequences of close collaborations in new music, innovative collaborations and new performance formats and inclusive collaboration models within the performative scene of today. During this conference-festival, CREATIE and Mixed Currents will offer a wide variety of concerts, lecture- performances, panel discussions, papers and lunch concerts with students of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp.

In this context they have launched this call for contributions: 

We invite to send proposals that critically deal with collaborations in contemporary performance. We especially encourage proposals by women, non-cis identifying people (M/F/X), people of color and people with disabilities, who are active in the present-day performance scene.
