The Equator Symposium is an international forum
intended as an arena for the meeting of experts, theorists, practitioners and researchers from various disciplines. This is an event for sharing information and knowledge, exchanging thinking and opinions in an effort to build critical understandings of contemporary visual arts practice in its connection to social, cultural and political dynamics in the equatorial region.

The Equator Symposium 2014 attempts to reveal the ecosystems within groups of many people (artists groups, hobby-based communities, business groups, etc.) in the organisation of their places (whether in the city, village, neighbourhood, state or between all of these). Examining encounters, both physical and virtual, and how these encounters are then disseminated to more people, is the first step in our efforts to reveal the ecosystems of these groups.
