Dates: 5-6 September 2016
Location: Loughborough University, UK
Website: TRACEY submission
Deadline for submissions: 20 June 2016

The conference aims to explore the notion of drawing as a ‘bridge’. In ‘tracing the bridge’ we suggest that a bridge is a richly metaphorical concept: it bridges a gap, acknowledges a space between and creates a structure to span it, and explores the idea of crossing back and forth. In respecting different territories a bridge puts them in contact with one another. What was a space of separation becomes an area to effect connections, a substantial form drawing on and linking two constituent parts. In considering these conceptual positions, can drawing be considered as synonymous with the bridge?
The conference aims to provide a space for discussion, dissemination and the exchange of knowledge and suggests the following as starting points in the discussion, as possible themes, as prompts and as provocations:

•       How might drawing function as the interlocutor between practice and theory?
•       What role does drawing play in fields beyond the creative practices?
•       How might drawing span diversities of discipline, gender and culture?
•       Is drawing the mediator between the self and other?

The conveners would like to invite proposals for a 20-minute presentation from practitioners, theorists and practitioner-researchers, which aim to generate debate around the concept of drawing as a bridge. Please upload your proposals using this link, and following the onscreen instructions, by Monday 20th June 2016.
