Save the date for the conference Alliances & Commonalities 22-24 October 2020!


The Stockholm University of the Arts announces its second Alliances and Commonalities conference, which will be held in Stockholm on October
22-24, 2020. An international conference for artists and researchers, Alliances and Commonalities looks at the larger questions of what connects us at this moment, when many countries are experiencing a rise in migration, nationalism, and xenophobia. How do cultural participants engage with each other and our environment in ways that respect our differences, but also illuminate what we have in common? Following the themes that emerged from the 2018 conference, next year´s conference is an opportunity for artists and researchers to explore themes such as connectivity through sustainability, and political action through intimacy. Past participants and those new to the conference are warmly invited to attend. Please join us.

Call for exposition and proposals opens in September.
