If you’re a New York-based MFA student and/or entry level, part-time faculty member, there’s still time to submit a proposal for a Professional Development Workshop at CAA 2019, generously supported by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation. The deadline for twenty professional development workshops is now September 14.
Workshop leaders will receive a complimentary one-year CAA membership, a full Annual Conference registration for 2019, and a small stipend. (Please note that there may be only one leader for each Tremaine Foundation-supported workshop.)
This summer, we surveyed our members to determine what kinds of Professional Development Workshops would be most helpful. Members shared that there was the highest need for workshops on grant writing; finding grant funding and fellowship opportunities; pedagogy; diversity and inclusion; job searching and networking; publishing advice; online learning platforms and technology; financial planning, strategies and negotiation. Workshops related to exploring art-making and design are also desired.
In total, the CAA 2019 Annual Conference will offer up to thirty, 60-minute art-making and Professional Development Workshops, which will be free and open to the public.
Proposals will be selected by the Annual Conference Committee.
While workshops will be scheduled concurrently with conference sessions, we will do our best not to schedule with overlapping content.
If you have any questions regarding these workshops, please email Mira Friedlaender, manager of the annual conference, at email@example.com.
