CfP: KISMIF CONFERENCE, 07-11 July 2020 | Porto, Portugal

Keep It Simple, Make It Fast! DIY cultures and Global Challenges

The 5th KISMIF will focus on ‘DIY Cultures and Global Challenges’. The world is currently living through a maelstrom of societal challenges. In parallel to the questions of migration, populism and an upsurge in nationalism, we find growing antagonisms facilitated by austerity, displacement, racism, class tensions, economic crisis and environmental change. In 2020, KISMIF’s scientific programme will once again be accompanied by a diverse social and cultural programme, characterised by a series of artistic events, with special focus on underground music and other artistic expressions. The aim is to provide a unique experience in terms of the transglobal and inclusive DIY cultures.  

The Conference will be preceded by a Summer School entitled ‘Not Just Holidays in the Sun’ on 7 July 2020 at Rivoli Municipal Theatre of Porto. The Summer School will offer an opportunity for all interested persons, including those participating in the Conference, to attend workshops directed by specialists in these fields, namely arts and community-based projects.
