Anthony Head (Bath, UK) and Santiago Tavera (Montreal, QC) attended one of the world’s most prominent international arts and technology events, the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA). This years ISEA aligned with the XVI International Image Festival of Manizales in Colombia from the 11th to the 18th of June. Head and Tavera organized an experimental and interactive workshop titled, Projected Narratives of Being and Belonging, in collaboration with Colombian and Canadian artist, Laura Acosta.

The workshop invited interdisciplinary artists to collaborate on an multiple video projection installation in La Universidad de Caldas. Over 20 participants combined fictional and personal narratives of belonging or displacement along with video experimentation. The workshop brought together scholars and artists to an interdisciplinary discussion and showcase of creative productions applying new technologies in art. This year’s conference theme, Bio-creation and Peace, encouraged participants to reflect on the contributions and alternatives that art, design and technology provide for social development, biodiversity and the establishment of peaceful relationships between diverse communities. The workshop Projected Narratives of Being and Belonging generated social collaboration between participants in order to work towards conflict resolutions between heritage surfaces and subjective narratives, past histories and illusions of the future, and finally, effects of war and visions of peace. 

Furthermore Tavera had the opportunity to give an artist talk on his creative-research, Translational Spaces which will also be published in the upcoming ISEA 2017 special issues in the Virtual Creativity Journal, Intellect Books later this year.
