Opportunity: Evolving the Forest (call for participation)
We are seeking the most engaging people and ideas to take part in Evolving the Forest
art.earth, our partners The Royal Forestry Society and Timber Strategies and our academic partner Science Walden @ Ulsan National Institute of Science & Technology (UNIST) invite proposals to an international forum: Evolving the Forest.
This is a three-day international forum bringing together creative thinkers and doers to explore physically and figuratively our relationship with wood, trees and forest over the past hundred years, and imagining that evolving relationship over the next 100.
The event takes place June 19-21, 2019 at Dartington Hall, Devon UK.
We particularly welcome submissions that challenge conventions of the academic conference: in what senses may we approach in our behaviours, our speech, our work, our ideas and ethos, the notion of voicing the forest? We invite you to explore participatory workshops, discursive formats (interviews, on-stage conversations, etc.), artist presentations, and performative disturbance and/or interventions.
The deadline for submissions is November 19 2018 (22.00 GMT). All proposals must be submitted online at https://evolvingtheforest.uk/proposal-form

Evolving the Forest Lead Convenor is Prof. Richard Povall. Please address any questions to email@example.com
