Call for Lightning Talk Proposals (2022 SAQA Conference)

Call for Submissions
Call for Entry Deadline

The SAQA Special Events Committee is looking for Lightning Talk speakers to share their work, ideas, and inspirations at the 2022 Virtual Conference - Bridging the Gulf: From Fabric to Fine Art.

This call is currently limited to members in the Florida and Gulf states regions. Submissions from outside these regions will be accepted in February if spots remain.

Lightning Talks are always a highlight of the conference and attendees always enjoy hearing about your passion and work. Each speaker creates a presentation of 20 slides and speaks about each slide for 20 seconds resulting in a fast-paced informative talk that is six minutes and 40 seconds long.

Do you have a story to tell?  How does the world impact your art?  Or maybe the other way around?  Lightning Talks are a wonderful way to share your thoughts visually and verbally - tell a short story! 

If you are interested in being a Lightning Talk presenter, complete the proposal form by January 31, 2022. Presenters will need to have all images or slides ready by March 31, 2022.
