TransCultural Exchange is Currently Seeking Proposals for its 2016 International Conference on Opportunities in the Arts: Expanding Worlds.

TransCultural Exchange's international conferences bring artists together with critics, gallery owners, curators, artist-in-residency directors and those working in other fields of interest to artists. Their aim is to advance artistic innovation by helping artists gain the time, funds, inspiration and other means to pursue their goals.

Conference Overview
Traditionally, artists have relied on galleries and dealers to promote their art. They have worked largely within the confines of their discipline and studio walls. However, these constructs are rapidly changing. Today's global reality has put new pressures on artists to expand their practice abroad, and to seek out new audiences, markets and inspirations. Consequently, more and more artists are managing their own careers, working in new formats and collaborating with people in different disciplines, both here and abroad.

To reflect these changes, TransCultural Exchange invites submissions for presentations at its three-day conference Expanding Worlds. The program will offer provocative keynotes, extensive networking with curators, critics and international residency directors, workshops, demonstrations, tours, exhibits, panels, portfolio reviews and more.

Scope of Topics
Picking up where the last conference Engaging Minds left off, the Conference Committee is soliciting presentations that address exciting possibilities for artists to embrace different cultures, mindsets and technologies. For instance, papers might present various international residency programs, offer practical advice (such as resources for funding or managing a studio practice), address social or political interventions or promote collaboration with other disciplines, such as medicine, architecture, conservation and engineering. Presentations on current trends in the arts and new research in other fields are also encouraged. (In the past, papers on topics outside the arts have been among the most popular because they inspire artists to think in new ways.)
