SAQA Conferences

Oceans Apart Logo

No matter where you live and make art, you’ve got something special to look forward to!

The 2021 SAQA conference will be an online event to be held mid-April 2021. The silver lining in our COVID cloud is finding a virtual world where we can network and share as never before.

The Oceania region wants to share the people and inspiration that make it unique. You can take part without reserving a flight, because it will all happen online.

Your SAQA Special Events Committee has been working with Oceania members to create the best virtual event possible.  Look for more details soon!


Excited yet? We are!

As soon as more details are available, we’ll be sending them your way. Because without you, Oceans Apart just wouldn’t be the same.

Our in-person conference “Bridging the Gulf: Fabric to Fine Art” in St. Petersburg, Florida, will take place April 28-May 1, 2022.
