A story resonates within each of us; one that links us to our past, validates our presence, and connects us to our future.
This is the overarching theme for the 2017 GAEA fall conference. It is our hope that participants will correlate the embedded ideals of story into their conference experience through speaker presentations, workshops, and peer collaborations.
story is not just series of words on paper but a collection of essential feelings, moods, and emotions documenting time and space. As this theme is presented participants will view a variety of ways to ‘tell a story’.
The process of documenting a narrative is a key element of focus. The journey and reflection of self will be encouraged and parlayed with other key elements like: preservation, heritage, culture, identity, home, and symbolism. The concept of story will be explored though text and visuals, often superimposing the two. Curriculum goals will scaffold from the story process and align with visual art standards.
Make plans now to join us this fall as keynote speaker, Jonathan Green uses his iconic collection of cultural art as a springboard for connecting content, context, and concept into visual stories.
Our all inclusive member registration fee of $225 covers all meals during 10/20-10/21/17 and full access to all workshops and speaking sessions.
