Art in Place (SAQA Mini-Conference)

Online Event

Come on a journey with us!

We've taken the best of our online conferences and condensed them into a smaller two-day mini-event. Enjoy fantastic presentations and make connections with other attendees. Hear from artists from all over the world about how they are inspired by their location and travels. This virtual mini-conference will also include opportunities to meet and network with artists worldwide.

Here are some of the highlights (view speakers)

  • Keynote speaker Carolyn Crump uses art quilts to tell provocative stories that defy common boundaries. Crump views her art as an expression of insight, strength, and love. Get to know her through her talk, "The Many Facets of Carolyn Crump."
  • Travel to Yoko Sekita's rich interior world. Interviewed by Naomi Ichikawa, Sekita showcases complex imagined and autobiographical scenes. Images from Japanese culture, Sekita's travels, and children's literature are hidden in the details of her work. The interview is a treasure hunt through these stories, told from the perspective of a former manga artist.
  • Join us for panel presentations on artist residencies, SAQA Global Exhibition Aviary, and international artist group 20 Perspectives. Plus, hear more from United Kingdom artist Samantha Boot and her "Palette of Place." 
  • Participate in an art postcard exchange with other attendees.

So please join us for this unforgettable two-day event! Since it's all virtual, you can participate from anywhere. Plus, since everything is recorded, you can watch on your schedule if you can't join us live. Recordings will be available for 3 months.
