a2ru National Conference
University of Georgia
UGA will host the 2018 National Conference for the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) on the theme of “Arts Environments: Design, Resilience, and Sustainability.” The conference will be held in partnership with the UGA Arts Council and in conjunction with the November Spotlight on the Arts festival.
The 2018 theme, Arts Environments: Design, Resilience, and Sustainability, is an invitation to explore the relationship between creativity and diverse cultural locations, by framing discussions about design, resilience, and sustainability in context of interdisciplinary artistic and environmental practice. The theme offers an opportunity to think broadly about the ecology of the arts and their environments, in terms of performance, design, and engineering. A land and sea grant institution inextricable from the town of Athens and the broader ecologies of Georgia and the Southeast, the University of Georgia will provide a rich context for thinking creatively about Arts Environments globally.
