Call for FATE Presentations 2017: Social Practice in Foundations

by Ellen Mueller on June 6, 2016, no comments

I am chairing a panel at the FATE conference in Kansas City, April 6th-8th, 2017. My panel is entitled, “Social Practice in Foundations,” and I’m looking for presenters. The deadline to submit is Friday, July 15th, 2016. Here’s the abstract:

“Social practice focuses on social engagement and collaboration with individuals, communities, and institutions as a form of participatory art. With the constant evolution of art and design foundations, where and how does this contemporary art form fit in? This panel seeks submissions that address strategies for introducing social practice as part of foundations programs. Topics of investigation could include, but are not limited to, project/assignment outlines and analysis, critique strategies, art historical analysis of pedagogical approaches, case studies examining existing curricular structures and how social practice fits into these, etc.

Submissions follow a 2-part process:

You do not need to be a current FATE member to apply; however, membership will be required at the time of the event. Conference registration fee is required of all. Presenters will be notified of their selection by August 1st, 2016.

Please share far and wide! I would love to hear from a wide variety of interested people.
