   Vision Forum  is proud to announce its third international workshop with KSM in Norrköping and Linköping September 27-28, 2011. It is a packed program with participants from all over the world that will meet local players for inspiration and creation.This year’s meeting focuses on two main topics: What does artistic research imply and how does knowledge function in the artistic field? We will look at these questions with specific emphasis on the audience and audience participation.

We are very happy to develop the established collaborations in Norrköping and pleased to travel to Linköping to meet new institutions to work with. Below you will find a detailed program (subject to change).
