The theme for this year is: Diverse Voices.
The deadline for submissions is FRIDAY 17th DECEMBER
Conference website is at https://filmfreeway.com/Communitesandcommunication
This year we are expanding the range of accepted submissions to artworks, performance, video submission, and other non-conventional forms.
- Local vs global
- Crossing boundaries
- Platforms for dissemination
- Collective voice
- Art as activism
- Quiet voices
The need for Diverse Voices’ inclusion into the conversation on communities and communication has never been more urgent. Connecting communities only makes sense when a variety of experiences share the stage in a respectful and engaging way, building a network of support and understanding between disciplines and different forms of expression. Building upon the success of last year’s edition, we are excited to invite participants from around the globe to engage in the discussion, in the hope for a more integrated approach to knowledge generation.
