CFP Cities as Community Spaces (Malta)

The Valletta 2018 Foundation has launched a series of annual international conferences addressing different aspects related to cultural relations in Europe and the Mediterranean.

Valletta 2018’s annual conference Cities as Community Spaces will be held on the 23rd-25th November 2016. The conference seeks to explore the social dynamics through which space – public, private and virtual– within a city serves as a site of exchange, contestation, and critical reflection between different communities, with a particular reference to the Euro-Mediterranean context and Valletta as European Capital of Culture in 2018.

The conference is driven by five main thematic areas:
*Community Driven Spaces
*Community Contested Spaces
*Developing Creative Spaces
*City Space as an Empowerment Tool
*Online Community Spaces

The Valletta 2018 Foundation is inviting contributions from academics, researchers, artists and practitioners related to any of these themes. The range of papers or posters may cover theoretical and methodological perspectives, practical examples and artistic interpretations of the issues and challenges faced in cities by communities.

Applicants are invited to submit a proposal (abstract) of no more than 250 words by Friday 18th March 2016.

More information, including the full call for papers and posters document is available at the conference website or by contacting the Valletta 2018 Foundation.
