The ISEA Symposia: Learning from the Past; Looking at the Future
Moderator: Jill Scott
The ISEA International Advisory Committee is organising an open discussion at ISEA2022 that invites the audience to reflect on ISEA’s past and help define its future. The ISEA symposium has been held in 19 countries around the world since 1988.
A lot has changed in that time and we now find ourselves in a post-pandemic environment where dissemination of information and community engagement has changed radically. The structure of the ISEA organisation has also changed in the past 34 years and is continuing to change. The ISEA community as a whole is very diverse. At any ISEA symposium you will find attendees that helped define ISEA in the late 1980s as well as new comers. You will meet artists, scientists, researchers, curators, technologists, students and educators, as well as culturally diverse attendees from nearly every continent. The voice of the larger ISEA community is incredibly important in helping the organisation pave a dynamic and effective path forward.
This Roundtable will ask attendees to:
- Reflect on their experiences at the ISEA symposia throughout the years: What works well, what needs improvement?
- Suggest ideas for the future of the organization and symposium
- Discuss possible goals and ways to realise them
- Please fill out the Future of ISEA Survey
