ICAE 2022 Abstract Submission

A right to roam

Conference Monday 18th & Tuesday 19th July

The thematic catalyst for this years conference is A right to roam

A right to roam can be connected to calls to think, re-imagine and create, as well as to physically move or migrate, to run and cross boundaries.The call is not necessarily coming from “out there”, but also from an inner urge to roam, perhaps in response to lockdown and being constrained in so many ways.  

A right to roam also recognises a moral obligation to trouble and expand knowledge and ways of generating knowledge…perhaps protesting against constrained ideas introduced by certain groups or approaches.

A right to roam respects the necessity to search for knowledge by roaming about – sometimes (or often) without a clear plan or procedure, with a personal conviction that knowledge does not follow clear and predefined paths, signposted by the “expert knowers”. Knowledge happens and becomes through myriad ways, unknown paths or perhaps even no paths, and it doesn’t ask the landowner for the right to enter the land.

2022 Virtual online & Physical in-person

Our contributions voice poverty, exclusion, mental health and illness, communion, social justice, creativity, growth, activism and hope.
