“In sectors across the business and creative worlds, old models of cause and effect are becoming obsolete. We are beginning to acknowledge the complex and chaotic nature of the systems that surround us. Flexibility, fluidity, spontaneity and real time responsiveness are the essential qualities needed for this accelerated world. The future will belong to those who can improvise best.” Phelim McDermott & Lee Simpson
In May 2019, the iii will be co-hosting the Global Improvisation Initiative – a global gathering of improvisers, coming together to work on the theme of awareness. It’ll take place at Middlesex University in London from 15th – 19th May.
Would you like to be involved? We’re currently inviting calls for proposals from improvisers, teachers, makers, performers, researchers and students from any field to consider the symposium theme of “awareness.” We are interested in proposals across a range of formats, including performances, talks, workshops, presentations, papers, panel discussions, making and craft-based sessions, roundtables, or any other format you’d like to suggest. Expressions of interest should be 150-250 words, and the deadline is Monday 15th October 2018. You can read more about the GII and how to submit a proposal here. Tickets to attend the GII will be available later this year.
