SAQA Conferences

SAQA's annual conference is an opportunity for our members to gather together, to network and socialize, to attend informative talks and presentations geared to help one grow as an artist, and to visit local art venues and landmarks. With assistance from local members, our Special Events Committee plans a full schedule of fun activities, informative presenters, local activities, exhibitions, and more!

The 2024 SAQA conference "Plurality and Heritage" will be held online from April 12-20, 2024. This conference will showcase the amazing artwork and artists in the Europe and Middle East. No matter where you live, you’ve got something special to look forward to! 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at
