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.

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.

Twenty of these workshops are generously supported by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation and will be led by MFA students and/or entry level, part-time faculty local to the 2019 Annual Conference in New York. 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.)

In addition to those funded by the Tremaine Foundation, CAA will offer additional Professional Development Workshops. Workshop leaders will receive a full Annual Conference registration for 2019 and a small stipend. (Please note that there may be only one leader for each workshop.) These workshop leaders do not need to be from the local New York area.

Submit a Workshop Proposal

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.

Proposal Deadline for all Professional Development Workshops is August 31, 2018.
