Call for submissions 2019 ASSITEJ Magazine

The 2019 ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering will be in Kristiansand from September 2-5, 2019.

The specific theme for 2019 is Towards the Unknown: Confronting the Present

The magazine will be published in English and the original Language of the author. We will again create a visual magazine that communicates through images and text. Both visuals and text should address the theme: Confronting the Present.

This magazine calls for articles that confront the present, with an eye towards the unknown from numerous artistic perspectives:

  • How would we confront (re)presentations of childhood as artists, directors, actors, pedagogues, dramaturgs, researchers, producers, arts managers, dancers, musicians, scenographers, video artists?
  • How do we see the present audience and how do we wish to see them? Which confrontations or interventions are necessary or implied?
  • How do we confront the rapidly evolving role of new media in TYA?
  • How do we confront normativity and promote inclusivity in TYA?
  • How does TYA confront the present crises affecting children and youth?
  • How do we see the role of research in confronting the present?
  • What are the untold stories of the present and how do we tell them?
  • How is contemporary TYA (re)presented on a global scale?

  • be between 500-700 words maximum and sent in Word and PDF (both), Times 12pt font. 
  • include a title and the name of the author at the top, and a 25 word bio of the author at the end.
