Call For Paper

We invite you to join our call for papers as part of the 3rd International Conference on Art, Craft, Culture, and Design (ICON ARCCADE), held on 12-13 October 2023.

Globally, 2023 marks the mid-point of the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals agenda, yet we are still struggling to rebuild and respond to current conditions in every aspect. The future remains unpredictable and never have we been presented with such complexity as what we are facing today. As we continue to live in this age of Anthropocene, we carry on the legacy of being the cause of both destruction and rehabilitation. These ambiguous roles manifest on every occasion when we try to solve a problem. Consequently, we grow to feel more anxious and innovation seems to no longer be possible. 

Creativity is at the heart of what we do as artists, makers, and designers. For us, crisis creates opportunities to open up other pathways in this ever-changing world. With its fluidity, art, craft, culture, and design discipline has significant roles in facilitating changes everywhere through its capability to connect humans, nature, and everything in between. At this conference, we are inviting you to explore the theme of “Fluid & Ubiquitous”, which is elaborated into various sub themes that encompass some key ideas:

  1. Care
  2. Systemic Design
  3. Cross-cultural Identity
  4. Object as an Agency 
  5. Transmateriality
