Balance-Unbalance, an international conference, brings multiple disciplines together to explore intersections between nature, art, science, new technologies, aid agencies and society with the goal of developing cross-disciplinary initiatives using innovative art and technology to advance ecological awareness and sustainability practices and to inspire wide-ranging community engagement in the face of unprecedented environmental challenges.
Balance-Unbalance 2015 will focus on water, climate, and place, seeking dialogues and creative projects engaged with water and climate problems around the globe. These dialogues may take the form of scholarly and creative presentations, including research papers, transdisciplinary workshops and activities, panel discussions or roundtables, sound and media art, musical performances, installations, soundwalks, and posters. Balance-Unbalance 2015 will provide a forum for the growing body of sustainability research in the arts, humanities and sciences and for creative activities inspired by environmental concerns. We welcome proposals from but not limited to artists, art and humanities scholars, scientists, engineers, economists, and policy makers to advance discussions and collaborative efforts that lead to solutions for a sustainable future.
