      In Dialogue is an International Symposium that will interrogate how artists and researchers use dialogue in practice. In Dialogue will focus on performance, translation, as a methodology and curatorial practice, through a number of panel discussions, performances, workshops and presentations. It will utilize an eclectic mix of approaches and provide an opportunity for local, national and international dialogue between participants. The symposium grew out of a conversation regarding individual research interests; it deliberately sets out to present different ways in which the arts/artist use this term. It is curated by Viviana Checchia, Heather Connelly and Rhiannon Slade, and supported by Loughborough University and Nottingham Trent University – where each of the aforementioned participants are studying for their practice led PhD’s. It will take place at three sites across the city of Nottingham on August 30th – 31st August, supported by Nottingham Contemporary. The program will include a communal meal at a local Community Hall on Thursday evening and a day of activities at Primary, an artist-led space. Panelists include Bisan Abu Eisheh, Mirna Bamieh, Clare Charnley, Fucking Good Art, Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison, Dr Alex Mevel, John Newling, Alexandra Ross, WochenKlausur, Katerina Zdjelar.

InDialogue was chaired by Dr Anna Ball, Nottingham Trent University. PANEL THREE: Performing Dialogue. Panelists Martina Reuter and Manfred Rainer from Wochenklausur, Newton and Helen Harrison from The Harrison Studio and John Newling each presented their latest work. Collectively their practice shares a common concern for the public interest which is activated through their use of the dialogic. The panel was chaired by Rhiannon Jones who facilitated a conversation between artists, countries, time zones and sites to discuss the use of conversation to generate practice.
