The organizers invite theoretical, experimental, sensorial, and methodological contributions that cover themes including, but not limited to:

- Sociospatial encounters and understandings between different people and places

- The politics and ethics of representation in visual research

- The dynamic power relations at play in the construction and dissemination of images

Film, photography, performance, cartoons, sound, drawings, and any other sensory materials produced through critical, creative or reflexive processes in practice-as-research or ethnography are welcome.


The residency conference is open to social researchers with strong audio-visual projects.

Residency: 1) participants will present audio-visual projects that are work-in-progress; 2) participants will have concrete plans for developing these projects during the residency; 3) participants will be ready to collaborate with other attendees in an innovative and creative, yet professional and technically proficient manner, to create a collective project to be exhibited during the conference.

Conference: 1) participants will present finished work relevant to the conference topic; 2) the presentation will be centred around a strong audio-visual component.
