University of Regina and First Nations University of Canada are seeking submissions for “Performing Turtle Island, Fluid Identities and Community Continuities,” a seminar/workshop/conference taking place Sep 17-19 2015. Deadline for submissions: Dec 15, 2014.
Performing Turtle Island brings together established and emerging scholars and artists to focus on how Indigenous theatre and performance are connected to Indigenous identity and community health. This Call is looking for proposals for academic papers as well as proposals for Seminars and Workshops – sharing circles for practical and performative exchange. We are interested in proposals that touch on innovative approaches to performance, education, research, health and healing and community consultation
The central theme that the Conference takes up in the form of a national symposium of Canadian Indigenous performers and playwrights, scholars and artists is unknowing.
