Transdisciplinary Compositions Contemporary Challenges

Oct 17 2019 Oct 18 2019

We are pleased to invite you to the international conference ‘Transdisciplinary Compositions | Contemporary challenges, towards collaborative practices in the Arts & Sciences’. The conference will take place on Thursday and Friday, October 17 - 18, 2019 at Erasmus University College Rotterdam and De Kunsthal.

Some of today’s biggest challenges are transdisciplinary challenges in fields such as mental health, climate change and social justice. The aim of the conference is to explore how the languages and practices of the arts and sciences can be shared, translated, and re-composed across disciplines in order to address contemporary challenges on the nexus of behaviour, space and environment.


To that end, we are inviting frontrunners in the sciences, humanities, arts and design to participate. Over two days, internationally renowned guests will give keynote lectures, performances, workshops and master classes based on their transdisciplinary work.
