The 16th International Conference on Small Island Cultures

 

Date: June 22-25, 2022

Place: Shetland, Scotland

Conference Theme: Creativity, Ingenuity, and Practice

Hosted by: The Center for Island Creativity, University of the Highlands and Islands (see here for official conference site)

Islands have long been centres of creativity, ingenuity, and innovation. This conference seeks to share knowledge of and celebrate facets of island creativity. We invite proposals for papers, panels, posters, roundtables and (creative) workshops that highlight the many ways island societies put their manifold creative skills into practice, from their distinct responses to political, environmental, economic and social challenges, to the development of island creative economies and the promotion of community well-being.

 

In line with this theme, we welcome submissions on the following topics:

1. Creative Economy on Islands

2. Experience of the Island-based Creative Practitioner

3. Creative Entrepreneurship on Islands

4. Creative Approaches to Island Political, Environmental, Economic and Social 

     Challenges

5.  Creative Approaches to Sustainable Island Tourism

6. Other themes relating to islands studies will also be considered

The Centre for Island Creativity (CIC) supports research, post-graduate taught learning and knowledge exchange across the wide diaspora of the highlands and islands of Scotland. A core value is the recognition that remote locations where creative practitioners and thinkers choose to have their studio or production base are each a centre of research and graduate learning.
