Call for Art: IOA 2020 Conference

The International Ombudsman Association is seeking items for an art exhibit at the 2020 annual conference. Organized by Teresa Ralicki, Ombuds at the University of Colorado Denver and IOA Director, and Adam Barak Kleinberger, COOP, Associate Ombuds at Boston University, the exhibit is a new feature for the conference. “Experience: On Display” will feature artworks of all kinds.
Here are the details:
2020 Annual Conference Concurrent Session – “Experience: On Display”
Conferences are a great opportunity for those practicing and supporting the Ombuds profession to exchange and empathize over shared experiences and challenges. In a field where relationships are integral, traditional podium and panel formats allow for a particular type of interaction.
“Experience: on Display” brings a new format to our participation in the annual conference. It creates an immersive platform for participants to relate to each other in new physical, visual, and experiential ways.
What is it?
“Experience: on Display” is an exhibit of art created by you, the conference participants. This co-created experience will help engage conference-goers to network and reflect in deeper ways than customary formats.
We need you…your experience, your creativity, and your art.

Here is how to participate:
1. What is a feeling or experience you’ve had related to this work??
Think about a part of your experience in, aspiring to, or supporting the ombuds role - this is for practicing ombuds, retired ombuds, aspiring ombuds, ombuds supporters, conflict management professionals and you! What is a feeling or experience you’ve had related to this work?
2. Express this experience.
How might you express this experience? Here is a non-exhaustive list of mediums you can choose from:
  • Painting, drawing, printmaking
  • Ceramics
  • Music or sound
  • Film or video
  • Graphic narrative
  • Literature
  • Performance
  • Photography
  • Sculpture
