Balance-Unbalance is an International Conference designed to use art 
as a catalyst to explore intersections between nature, science, 
technology and society as we move into an era of both unprecedented 
ecological threats and transdisciplinary possibilities. We are 
thoroughly looking forward to hosting artists, scientists, 
economists, philosophers, politicians, sociologists, engineers and 
policy experts from across the world to engage in dialogue and action 
towards a sustainable future. Balance-Unbalance 2013 will also host a 
diversity of virtual components allowing global accessibility and 
significantly reducing the carbon footprint of a major international 
One of the main goals of Balance-Unbalance is to develop the role of 
the arts and artists in dealing with environmental challenges. The 
previous events held in Buenos Aires in 2010 and Montreal in 2011 
provided a powerful platform for reflection, debate, and ideas 
leading towards Balance-Unbalance 2013, hosted in the UNESCO Noosa 
Biosphere Reserve on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. The 2013 
conference theme, Future Nature, Future Culture[s] is aimed to 
provoke discourse around what our elusive future might hold and how 
transdisciplinary thought and action could be used as tools for 
positive change. 
Submissions are now being accepted for the 
International Balance-Unbalance 2013 conference to be held at 
 Central Queensland University in Noosa, Australia  from May 31 - 
June 2, 2013. Balance-Unbalance 2013 is being held in the beautiful 
resort town of Noosa, in parallel with 
the <http://www.floatingland.com.au/>Floating Land 2013 Green Art 
festival and just prior to the <http://www.isea2013.org/isea2013>ISEA 
2013 (International Symposium on Electronic Art) conference in 
Sydney, so participants can maximise their time in Australia by
