    "ISEA2009 will be concerned with Engaged Creativity in Mobile Environments. The incessant change of physical and virtual environments under the influence of global capital and mass migration as well as the fluidity of personal and social relationships effected by digital information and communication technologies has come to determine the life experience for billions of people. These conditions radically and rapidly alter the ways we communicate, inter- and transact, how we make meaning of the world and how we conduct our lives along dramatically changing fault lines of the private and the public. Digital technologies as the fuel of global capital have not only effected dynamic and increasingly precarious labour relations. They underpin and challenge the negotiation of political and economic, social and cultural, religious and territorial conflicts and the re/organisation of society and its spaces alongside changing notions of democracy, citizenship and (self-) governance. ISEA2009 seeks to explore how creative strategies explore and engage with these fundamental issues. The University of Ulster will be hosting the ISEA2009 symposium in association with academic partners in the Republic of Ireland, national and international industry and business sponsors, and through partnership activities with a host of arts and cultural organisations across the region."
