CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - Deadline 31 JULY 2008

Faculty of Architecture Building and Planning
The University of Melbourne

Vital Arts – Vibrant Communities
Conference 5-7 September 2008

Today there is increasing awareness that the arts play a crucial role in improving the health and social wellbeing of communities. Over fifty years ago, the World Health Organisation proposed that health is not merely the absence of illness but a complete state of physical, mental and social wellbeing dependent on a range of elements physical, psychological and social. We now know that cultural practice is significant among these factors. Whether we observe performing artists allied with youth workers to tackle homelessness, the rise of patient-focused architecture in public hospitals, or the use of arts education to promote health in schools, we see compelling evidence that the arts can have a considerable impact on social and institutional life.

As the therapeutic and transformative possibilities of arts programs continue to attract interest from practitioners in diverse fields, the importance of multi-disciplinary research and collaboration is increasingly apparent. The achievements of such partnerships can often go unrecognised or undocumented in research, policy and analysis.

The aims of this conference are:

To bring together people with shared interests in the arts in order to encourage activities that cross disciplinary divisions, to exchange knowledge and inspire creative partnerships;
To gather credible evidence about the contribution made by the arts to community health;
To develop approaches which embed the arts within health policy and planning.

*/CALL FOR PAPERS: Deadline 31 JULY 2008

The UNESCO Observatory welcomes 15-minute papers that address the following themes:

Healthcare and social therapy: insights and observations gathered from arts programs in education, healthcare, community development, youth services, alternative health practice, disabilities and access.

Public space and the built environment: insights and observations gathered from design and architecture programs in hospitals, parks, community centres and other public spaces.

Cross cultural arts programs: contributions to indigenous arts, planning and health care. Observations and insights from community development in Asia and the Pacific.

Strategy and methodology: ideas for developing collaborations in multi-disciplinary research and programs. Strategies for developing networks, opportunities and support for artists working in the health sector. Insights on method for evaluating health-arts programs.

ABSTRACTS should be of 250 words for a 15-minute paper with a 200-word biography.

Apologies for the protracted hiatus dearest reader but The BBox Crew simply cannot function without the erroneous guidance of our Editor in Chief Skanky Jane who, subsequent to the contraction of an equally protracted disease, has gone AWOHL (Aimlessly Wandering On Her Lonesome). We promise that irregular posting will resume if and when the skank returns.

“Manuel Marino is a former artist who decided to strike out on his own after’s copyright scandal in 2000. His studio, Marino Sounds, provides audio for game, television and multimedia projects at as low a rate as possible in order to actively encourage business from the indie scene. Projects such as Derek Smart’s Universal Combat and the X-com inspired UFO: Alien Invasion gave Marino a certain kudos, and his current work on the Morrowind ITP (Italian Translation Project) comprises a further step towards the mainstream. “Being ‘indie’ is like being in a big family. I feel that other independent musicians and designers are my brothers, and that they deserve my help,” he told me. He’s enjoyed the game experience so much that he’s planning to establish a full-time dev team.” (Paul Taylor, Music4Games)
