We as artists are always in-process, and as we adjust to changes in the education system as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are mindful of how the very fabric of American culture is shifting—the process of recognizing the privilege many of us have, the process of making amends in broken cultural relationships, and the need for decolonization are all in process and coming into clearer focus.  As we “re-warp” the fibers of our understanding, we can recognize that in the process of making, we must weave the threads of new ideas together.  In the making, we find meaning, and in togetherness, we find we are one.  

This year's conference consultant is Dana Attivo, with the support of conference chairs:
