The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) and UJ Arts & Culture invite expressions of interest to partner and/or present papers at the ACT | UJ Conference in March 2016.

The 4th edition of the conference, entitled, #creativeintersections – an interactive experience, will be presented at the UJ Arts Centre at the University of Johannesburg on March 16 and 17, 2016. The conference will explore the creative industry and creativity by stimulating thought across different disciplinary boundaries.

“At ACT we see more and more artists being partial to interdisciplinarity when it comes to their creative production. This concept, however far from new, presents vast potential for other areas of creative practice too,” remarks Pieter Jacobs, CEO of ACT.

The conference organisers invite proposals of innovative creative and business case studies and research that demonstrate the potential interdisciplinary activity holds for online publication during the #creativeintersections conference.
