InDialogue 2019
Conference: November 19 – 21 2019
Open Call

InDialogue is a collaborative artistic research project between Dr Rhiannon Jones and Dr Heather Connelly. Conceived in 2012, whilst both where in the midst of the PhDs in Fine Art, InDialogue was created as an extension of their own practices and aims to provide platform and hospitable environment for artistic research, experimentation, interrogation and discussion about and through dialogue.

InDialogue is inviting artists and researchers to participate in the interrogation of dialogue across 3 cities in the Midlands, UK.  Over the course of 3 days, InDialogue-ers will activate the cities of Derby, Lincoln and Nottingham through papers, workshops, performances, happenings, artist-led labs, live music, eat together, dance, debate, create installations and interventions. This 4th iteration of InDialogue will bring together UK and International based artists and researchers for 3 days in November to share works, and push the boundaries in thinking about the use of dialogue within practice, across the disciplines of art and design.

The focus for InDialogue 2019 is Site-Form-Dialogue. Site-Location-Dialogue.Site-Practice-Dialogue.
