Call for submissions

Arts Matters 2024 submissions

Arts Matters is an interdisciplinary conference, so we encourage submissions from a wide range of subject areas. We will be accepting abstracts and project descriptions from all social sciences, humanities, and liberal arts disciplines. Participation in Arts Matters is FREE.

We are accepting abstracts for conference presentations in either French or English and we encourage the submission of creative work and multimedia projects* as well.

We welcome individuals from all backgrounds to share their academic work and creative projects. Students are encouraged to submit academic and creative work on all topics.

Participants can also choose to submit work that speaks to our conference theme. This year’s theme centers on the following question: "How do we navigate change together in an age of uncertainty?"

If you have a project that you would love to share but you don’t know if it fits, please send us your abstract as we are looking to build a highly diverse program of presentations.

Accepted presenters will be invited to give a 12-15 minute presentation during one of the conference panels on March 22 and 23, 2024.

*If you plan to present a creative project with a visual component (e.g. visual art project, digital art, etc), please include images of your work with your project description.

We are also accepting applications for performers for our conference coffee house on March 22. Apply now.

Registration to attend is also open! If you are planning to attend any of our conference events, register here.
