Organisers expect Play! A Symposium to be a dynamic and thought provoking launch for the overall Festival.The Festival Website is HERE.
To this end, attached HERE is an initial Call for Proposals in English and HERE in French and HERE in Spanish. As it outlines, organisers are interested in any form of presentation to do with Play! While organisers will of course accept academic proposals, they are also eager to entertain other forms of presentations, as they believe the theme of Play! is evocative, exciting and rich in possibilities. The deadline for proposals to be received is 20 November 2015.
They ask that you send this invitation on to others whom you feel might be interested, and they look forward to hearing back from you.
