a2ru National Conference: Land and Equity
Begins October 15, 2020
As an a2ru partner institution, UGA will cover registration costs for a limited number of a2ru conference participants. If you are interested in attending please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before registering.
The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) invites you to the 2020 a2ru national conference, Land and Equity: The Art and Politics of Place, to be held online and hosted by the University of Wisconsin–Madison, October 15-30, 2020. All sessions will be held via Zoom. The a2ru National Conference is an opportunity for practitioners and researchers from across the higher education spectrum to share innovations and perspectives in the arts.
The 2020 theme, Land & Equity, considers how our work as artistic, scientific, and humanist researchers and educators is defined by the land on which we find ourselves, and asks who has access to that land and its resources? In turn, we will examine how our art, research, and teaching impacts the places and spaces in which we live and work, and discuss ways that we can use that work to advance more equitable access.
This year’s conference features special registration pricing for this virtual experience. Attendees will also have the option to register for an unlimited session pass or for individual sessions or keynote presentations.
a2ru advances the full range of arts and design-integrative research, curricula, programs, and creative practice from across the disciplines in order to acknowledge, articulate, and expand the vital role of higher education in our global society. a2ru’s work, in partnership with more than 35 research institutions, envisions a world in which universities—students, faculty, and leaders—explore, embed, and integrate the arts in everyday practice and research. The a2ru National Conference is an opportunity for practitioners and researchers from across the higher education spectrum to share innovations and perspectives in the arts.
