Call for participation is now live!

NOVEMBER 19th – 21st 2019

DAY 1 DERBY:Derby Theatre & Déda

DAY 2 LINCOLN: Mansions of the Future

DAY 3 NOTTINGHAM: Nottingham Contemporary

InDialogue is back, and this time it is inviting artists and researchers to participate in the interrogation of dialogue across 3 cities in the Midlands, UK.  Over the course of 3 days, InDialogue-ers will activate the cities of Derby, Lincoln and Nottingham through papers, workshops, performances, happenings, artist-led labs, live music, eat together, dance, debate, create installations and interventions.

This 4thiteration of InDialogue brings together UK and International based artists and researchers to push the boundaries in thinking about the use of DIALOGUEand SITE within PRACTICE, across the disciplines of art and design.

We invite proposals that will activate the temporary occupation of a variety of regional cultural venues   Derby TheatreDédaS.H.E.D , Mansions of the Future, Nottingham Contemporary. The call seeks to harness the potential movement of InDialogue through the region in a variety of contexts to afford further examination of dialogic practices.

We also invite participants to propose works, happenings and activities to occur on the InDialogue bus that will transport participants between the 3 cities, or for the mobile art space S.H.E.D.,the Social Higher Education Depot commissioned by In Good Company & the University of Derby.


InDialogue encourages abstracts and proposals for papers, interventions, performances, papers, roundtables for all venues (see here for more details), InDialogue bus journeys between venues, coffee and communal meal times. However, it is important to advise applicants that InDialogue has limited resources and technical support and does not offer funding for artists or others to show or create new work. We are able to provide support in kind, and have written letters of support for those wishing to apply for grants or needing evidence for visa applications etc.

InDialogue 2019 will also be the subject of a special issue for international publication and will feature contributions from selected artists, researchers – participants to the event.

We will shortly be announcing the InDialogue International Artist Residency programme which will be delivered in partnership with Dance4and In Good Company.

Registration charge* and details will be announced shortly.

*There will be a small registration charge to attend InDialogue events which covers basic costs. This is will be announced when registration opens. InDialogue offers a platform to share work, acting like a symposium, and does not offer artists fees. 

InDialogue is a collaborative research project that has been established to provide opportunities for artists and researchers to enter into a dialogue with one another, test out and share ideas. The event is made possible through seed funding and funding in kind from our multiple partners, it operates on a non-profit basis and we aim to keep attendance costs to a minimum (2019 ticket prices TBC).

The full programme and associated Journal for InDialogue 2019 will be announced early summer 2019.
