SAQA Seminar 2022 - Highlights Revisited

Member Program

SAQA has presented five annual online SAQA Seminars from 2016. SAQA has many new members and some of us may have forgotten some of the content. So to (re)introduce you to the wonderful content we have compiled over the years, the Education Committee decided to revisit our previous SAQA Seminars for 2022. While SAQA Seminar Highlights Revisited is now over, all the great resources are still available - just scroll down below.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SAQA Seminar?

Launched in 2016, SAQA Seminar is an annual project offered through the Education Committee just for SAQA members. We wanted to provide members with opportunities to learn more about a particular topic, share their expertise, ask questions, have conversations, and meet new people.

SAQA Seminar is a multi-media collection of content that will be released weekly over a 6 to 8 week period. It will include articles, resources, video conversations, and more. The content is not instructional in nature but a guided tour through topics of interest. Weekly Zoom meetings give you a chance to discuss the topics with other participants and share our creative journeys.

SAQA Seminar is NOT a traditional retreat, workshop, class or conference - there are enough spots for everyone to participate as long as you are a SAQA member. All the offerings are available online and can be accessed even after the Seminar is over (check out our archives from past seminars).

When do I have to be at my computer for SAQA Seminar?

SAQA Seminar content is delivered each Monday afternoon via email and will also be available online. So you can review everything on your own schedule, even if you join late.

Each unit may includes video conversations, articles, optional activities, a related gallery, and some resource links. We do encourage you to join us for our weekly Live Chat sessions where you can talk about each unit with other participants and/or participate in the SAQA Members-Only Facebook group.

Most of these Zoom chats will NOT be recorded as they are are casual conversations in breakout rooms. If we do have special guests with presentations, we will record that portion. Details will be included in your weekly SAQA Seminar emails.

What if I miss a Live Chat?

Live Chats are optional weekly Zoom meetings which allow you to discuss Seminar content with other participants. These are NOT instructional in nature but rather a casual opportunity to connect with other artists and share in your creative journeys. Occasionally we will have special guests dropping by.

Due to this format, only certain portions of Live Chats will be recorded for future viewing. Looks for more details in your weekly emails.
