Jan 22, 2016

The Third International Teaching Artist Conference (ITAC3), which will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland from August 3-5, is now open for advanced registration. The conference, entitled “Best, Next and Radical Practice in Participatory Arts,” brings together artists, organisations, funders, and researchers from all over the world to explore key issues relating to participatory arts practice through an inspiring mix of curated conversations, practical workshops, keynote speeches, seminars, and round-table discussions.

Creative Scotland is managing and hosting the ITAC3 in partnership with Paul Hamlyn Foundation, ArtWorks Alliance, and the conference originators – including conference founder, Eric Booth.

The conference aims to be a platform for:

  • sharing practice, learning and research in the field of participatory arts
  • showcasing best and next practice for the host and visiting nations
  • generating new connections and building a palpable energy towards an international community


Thus far, confirmed speakers include Royston Maldoom, an internationally renowned choreographer, and Assemble, the 2015 Turner Prize winning artist collective. Event organizers have released a call for proposals, including guidelines for potential session themes.
