Attendance: InDialogue was created as a supportive platform for presenters to share their research, to provide an opportunity for artists and researchers to engage with each other in a transdisciplinary, international environment conducive to making new connections. Therefore presenters and delegates are expected to be present and to participate in all 3 days of the symposium, encouraging interaction and to develop an ongoing dialogue between participants 

Costs: Please note that there are no artist’s fees associated with this event and presenters will have to pay a nominal fee to attend this event, in addition to covering their own travel and accommodation.

InDialogue is supported in kind by the venues and the costs cover some refreshments and a communal meal. We are in the process of applying for funding and details of the conference fees will be announced in March 2016. We have negotiated discounted rates on local hotels and letters of support/invitation for successful applicants to use to raise their own funding.

InDialogue 2016 will take place in the city of Nottingham, UK. InDialogue 2016 is curated by founders Dr Heather Connelly and Rhiannon Jones with invited guest curator Rachelle Viader Knowles.
