In Dialogue is a biannual International Symposium that interrogates how artists and researchers use dialogue in practice.
In Dialogue is a series of interdisciplinary events including presentations, discussions, communal meals, open mic sessions, live music and performance/live art showcases taking place across the city. Our aim is to create a dialogue between the different applications and understandings of the term In Dialogue, considering differences, commonalities, and how diverse approaches to understanding and articulating the theme can lead to new ways of thinking and making.
