You are hereby invited to submit Proposals for Papers and Workshops for Colouring Outside the Lines: The 40th Annual Conference of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) to be held March 29-April 2, 2012 at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto, Canada.
As a metaphor for creative thinking, “colouring outside the lines” suggests openness to change, willingness to risk, confidence to lead, and courage to reaffirm values and traditions. As a programmatic framework, it enables a focus on professional excellence from diverse viewpoints, sharing knowledge, celebrating innovation, exploring alternate formats, and promoting collaboration. It provides opportunities to showcase creative thinkers from community-based arts organizations in one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
Paper and Workshop Proposals are due on May 15, 2011.
