The theme for our Paris conference is DiverseCity: Using Applied Improvisation to create a City of Love
Paris is a city full of diversity and welcomes people from everywhere. As a Universal Declaration of Human Rights country, we have a history of promoting values and the French love to share those values with Applied Improvisers from all over the world.
Likewise, the field of Applied Improvisation (AI) has a great history and is diverse. No one does it in exactly the same way as another. Within our diversity there are usually common categories, or “niches”. AI practitioners are often drawn to the one or more of these niches that best fits their interest, strengths, and network.
The #AIN18 World Conference in Paris will explore this diversity and shine a light on the range of possibilities and opportunities within Applied Improvisation. We aim to inspire one another in our diversity, share our creative discoveries, and build our skills in a supportive environment, all while having fun.
And together, we can share what makes improv so valuable.
We are looking for:
• demonstrations of part of an actual program that have been delivered to a client.
• detailed case studies of how you landed that big contract within a specific industry, since there is a big difference in how we market in the different niches.
• demonstrations of unique applications that broaden our insight into our field.
Proposals will be selected based upon the information provided within this form as well as how they fit within the scope of the overall conference, the other proposals, and based upon the following considerations:
1. How the presentations align and are balanced across the following niches:
Applied Improvisation utilized in...
a) Businesses/Organizations- where the objective is giving groups/organizations skills/tools to perform better
b) Service Of (Personal Growth or a Better World)- where the objective is healing people/planet, spiritual exploration, and/or personal growth
c) Performance (Special Events, Interactive Speeches, Key Notes, etc)- where the objective is meeting the needs of connection, celebration, and/or “edu-tainment”
d) Academia/Education/Research- where the objective is greater knowledge or the implementation of AI in academia
e) Innovative Arenas (Other)- where the objective is developing within unique applications or populations served
2. The diversity of the speakers, industries/areas represented, and teaching styles.
3. The level of interaction and application that inspires others in their practice.
