Call for proposals – Borrowed Time: on death, dying and change. What constitutes ‘a good death’? How do we know death, personally? What room do we make for the dead – within our relationships, our ways of speaking, our shared geographies? And how might the insights of end-of-life care and death practices help us to navigate the fundamental unsustainability of the dominant culture, and to better imagine what comes after it?
We welcome proposals from practitioners, thinkers and makers, from celebrants, scientists, and carers – inviting these and others to an assembly that will incline us all towards the unpredictable encounter, and towards apprehending death in ways that renew our understanding of what it means – and what it asks of us – to be alive. Art.Earth has a well-deserved reputation for the breadth and depth of its gatherings: at the darkening of the year in 2020 we’ll turn to the many ways in which the unsought visitations of dying and change bear upon and underpin our lives.https://borrowed-time.info/call-for-proposals/
