Australian Artists' Book Forum
Speakers' Abstracts and Workshop proposals

Deadline: Unspecified

5th Australian Artists' Book Forum
Call for Speakers' Abstracts and Workshop proposals
Artspace Mackay
Saturday 10 & Sunday 11 April 2010

The 5th Australian Artists' Books Forum will bring together artists, curators, writers, academics, students and collectors to discuss artists' books and book arts in Australia. The two-day forum builds on the success of previous conferences held at Artspace Mackay and again expects to attract speakers and delegates from across the country. Part of a larger, overall program for the gallery, the 5th Australian Artists' Book Forum will be complimented by workshops and masterclasses; the announcement of the 2010 Libris Awards: Australian Artists' Book Prize winners and exhibition of the finalists' works; an exhibition by 2008 Libris Award winner Deanna Hitti and displays drawn from the Mackay Regional Council's significant collection of artists' books.

Artspace Mackay is calling for abstracts from potential speakers for the 5th Australian Artists' Book Forum and workshop proposals from artists for associated events.

Speakers' abstracts and workshop proposals (for two-day workshops) should be submitted in writing, along with a current curriculum vitae, to:
