Call for Contributions, EMAC 2020

15 Jan 2020

EMAC participants are not simply attendees but contributors and cocreators. This insight follows the traditional model of the EMAC since its beginnings. Every participant is called to contribute in the contentual frame specified within previous discussions in the core group.

The host organisation acts as enabler and facilitator of space, time, methods, models and organisation.

In 2020 we as the host are convinced the time for frontal lectures and speeches is over, no one in the creative world wants to spend time with just looking at vintage power points.

It is the time for exchange, for cocreation, for the art of creativity and visions. Instead of a classical “call for papers” we call you

  • to propose your short contribution to the themes, that we have sampled within the community during the last months.
  • If you have news, projects, questions to raise, thoughts, etc. to these issues, feel free to propose!

Send your max. 1000 - caracter proposal to or via website.

Deadline is February 28th 2020.

Every Impulse workshop will start with an „Ideas slam“ in the manner of a poetry slam.

Maximum 10 minutes for each presentation!

No text on a power point – be creative how to communicate your message or position.

Proposals will be checked and selected till April 10th.
