This symposium will be an exciting time to share ideas and understand our field at a social level. In the weeks leading up to this event we encourage you to think about any questions you might have for each other and the visiting artists. There will be many opportunities for you to voice your questions and create a dialogue among one another, and what better time to do so! Many of our participants are students in graduate and undergraduate programs but many others will be professionals working in different areas of the field; this can be a wonderful time to gain an understanding of the diversity in our area of craft. Write down your notes, comments and questions as there will be time for them all.
