The 2015 edition of our conference had a theme guiding each keynote and panel: a sense of place. The speakers tackled the idea of place in a story and the way it is conveyed, depicted, researched, and understood. They shared stories of places visited for research and work, but also places they grew up in and places that changed their perspective on life.



Outside the conference hall, audience members were challenged to debate the idea of space through photo exhibits, but also by drawing, illustrating, or writing about important places in their lives.


Here are the video recaps:

Participants answering “Who, where and what?”: Who are you? Where would you take me if you wanted to show me an important place? What did you like most about the conference?
