The SAQA Board is looking forward to our upcoming virtual conference, Plurality & Heritage, showcasing artwork in the Europe & Middle East Region. These are their Top 10 Reasons to Sign Up! The conference will be online from April 12-20 with access to unlimited replays for three months.

  1. Travel throughout Europe and the Middle East on a textile extravaganza without leaving the comfort of your home. Experience the rich history and warm hospitality of colleagues.
  2. Learn from speakers in the UK, Hungary, Italy, Austria, Finland, Scotland, France, Switzerland, Latvia, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark, Israel, Poland, and Serbia. 
  3. Watch the recordings on YOUR schedule and at your pace. You can watch the recordings at fast speed or slow speed as many times as you’d like.
  4. Connect with other conference attendees around the world via breakout rooms, meet-ups on every art quilt topic imaginable, or a game (or two) of Bananagrams. You never know who you will meet!
  5. Discover artists’ studios: their creative spaces, routines, and inspiration. You may see new techniques or ways of doing art you have never considered.
  6. Discover talented artists and learn how they incorporate recycled materials: printing, dyeing, painting, and other textile techniques.
  7. See enormous installations made with found textiles. And view special exhibitions of art by members of the Europe & Middle East region.
  8. Make new textile friends on the other side of the pond without the hassle of flight delays and expensive hotel costs.
  9. Participate in the excitement of bidding in the Spotlight Auction -- more than 400 pieces of gorgeous art. 
  10. Support SAQA as an exciting and cohesive global community!
