The UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts, in partnership with the Japan Foundation Manila, will host an international academic gathering where artists, festival curators, choreographers, set designers, and art practitioners from Japan, USA, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines are given a space to talk about their work to heighten their artistry and creativity as starting points of artistic knowledge. This event aims to create a venue for a dialogue on creative and artistic collaboration in the performing arts.
Happening this 14-15 November 2019 at the GT Toyota Auditorium, Asian Center, University of the Philippines Diliman, our goal is to gather and engage more than 500 artists, scholars, students and enthusiasts of the performing arts to discuss their works and creative processes, and to share and generate artistic knowledge. This gathering highlights the role of artists as cultural producers, as well as the need for actual practitioners to directly engage audiences and communities without intermediaries. An emphasis is also placed on cross-cultural exchanges and creative partnerships to shift the conversation to the collaborative, rather than individual artistry. It calls for the assessment of current practices in international collaboration and the identification of possibilities in future artistic engagements.
See you this November 2019 at UP Diliman!
