If you've been considering submitting a proposal to present at Arts Activated, this is a reminder that proposals are due soon. The Arts Activated Conference is the perfect opportunity to bring together the growing culture of inclusive Arts in Australia. The call for proposals for papers, performances or workshops that address the Arts Activated Conference theme Desire and Destination closes on 16 April 2012.

A keynote address from international artist Petra Kuppers US (Find a Strange and Twisted Shape, Somatic Engagement, The Scar of Visibility) will set a vibrant stage for the conference.

"We're looking to develop a diverse program that spans many aspects of access to the Arts, including current themes in our culture such as new technology in the Arts and person-centred approaches for people with disability.

We will accept proposals in written, audio or video formats to make the submission process as accessible as possible and to encourage people with disability to apply as well as collaborative proposals that involve people with disability. We invite everyone to consider presentations about past experience and future aspirations of inclusive practices in the Arts," said Amanda Tink, Conference Convenor.
