Event description


Curated by Klara Ravat + The Institute for Art and Olfaction

Date: May 4, 2019
Time: 10am to 6pm
Location: Treehouse NDSM (NDSMPlein 79, 1033 WC, Amsterdam)

The Institute for Art and Olfaction teams up again with artist Klara Ravat for the third annual Experimental Scent Summit.

Over the course of a day, attendees will come together to share ideas through an exciting schedule of talks, breakout discussions and project presentations relating to experimental sensorial practices.

A friendly, relaxed and conversational meeting of olfactory artists, the Experimental Scent Summit is an annual opportunity for participants to share their work while openly discussing the challenges of working with scent in an unrestrained, non-competitive, supportive environment.

The Experimental Scent Summit is a ticketed event that covers venue costs. Tickets are available on a first come first serve basis, and are limited.

The Experimental Scent Summit is being produced as an ancillary program to The 6th Annual Art and Olfaction Awards, which take place on May 2, 2019 in Amsterdam. More information on the awards can be found here.


Do you work with scent in an experimental capacity? Do you have a project which you would like to share with an olfactory international community? Would you like to present your work to a wider audience?

For 2019’s event, we are accepting:
+ 9 speakers
+ 6 project presenters

Speaking slots are 15 minutes with 5 minutes for a few quick questions, and will focus on topics related to the wider philosophical questions around working with scent. This is not a place to present your work, but rather a place to explore concepts that you believe will benefit from larger exposure and discussion.

Project presentations are 5 minutes each. This presents a way to share one project you are working on, in 5 slides or less.

We can only accommodate 9 speakers and 6 project presentations for the third Experimental Scent Summit, but will also have opportunities for attendees to connect and talk about issues over the course of the day (and, of course, into the evening). Please understand that if we do not select your talk or workshop, it’s merely due to curatorial concerns, not any bearing on the quality of your proposal.

Proposals are due on 28th of February
We will communicate the curated speaker line-up by March 3rd.

+ If you are interested in proposing a talk or a project presentation, please fill out this online form.

Speakers' attendance ticket fees will be reimbursed.
