The International Arts Forum is an annual conference gathering performing, visual, and literary artists representing a variety of cultural backgrounds.
The topic of the 2014 International Arts Forum will be Art and Community: How Art Contributes to More Authentic Human Experience and Relationships. We will explore how art enables us to move beyond ourselves, and to shape, through our imagination, the world in which we live. We will consider how great artists do more than reflect their culture and present times, but actually shape the reality of culture and civilization.
Artists selected to participate in the International Arts Forum will have the opportunity to:
· Present/exhibit their work in the visual or performing arts
· Attend lectures by public intellectuals
· Engage in dialogue with artists from a variety of disciplines and cultural backgrounds
· Collaborate to compose an official statement in response to the conference theme

Deadline for international applicants: Friday, September 12th, 2014.
