SOUTHERN COMFORT: a conversation about what is working in foundations

A FATE/ITI ThinkTank style Regional Conference

It is easy to talk about what is not working in art foundations education, but often those conversations are limited to complaining & do not yield actual results.
We are interested in having a dynamic conversation about what is working in foundations. Use the poll on the sidebar to let us know the topics you are most interested in discussing.
The goal is to share what is working in our unique programs, through a combination of topic driven presentations & breakout discussion sessions.
In addition, all participants are encouraged to bring a tip, assignment, project handout or resource to share with the group
When: 2pm Friday, February 19th-Saturday,February 20th 4pm
Where: WASH {Workshop in Art Studio + History} Building at Sam Houston State University, 2220 Ave. M, Huntsville, Texas. Detailed information available under the Location tab.
Cost: $75, this covers all meals, snacks, parking & conference take home materials
