CALL FOR PROPOSALS: UNIVERSITY NETWORKING DAY

Transfer, a new component of the CTM festival, takes shape as an interdisciplinary laboratory and meeting ground for professionals and members of the general public. Encompassing a conversation program, theoretical discussions, presentations, workshops, and networking events, the Transfer program aims to intensify the exchanges between artists, musicians, cultural workers, music technology developers, researchers, students, and industry professionals.

Part of the Transfer program, the Education Networking Day scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, invites students, professors, and researchers from different graduate and posgraduate programs that straddle different fields such as audio, arts, media, and design, and related theoretical disciplines linked to these, to present programs, projects and activities. In addition to graduate and postgraduate students, the program is open to institutes and academies whose students have already made their first steps towards a professional or artistic practice. Located in the project rooms of the “Kunstqartier Bethanien”, the program gives students and professors the opportunity to present their research/study/project focus, and the diversity of their initiatives and ideas in 30 to 60 minute sequences.
