Upcoming Conference

Visions of Utopia

New Harmony Inn Resort & Conference Center - New Harmony, Indiana   |   October 17 - October 20, 2024

The conference Visions of Utopia promises to be an extraordinary experience, unlike any other. Set against the backdrop of New Harmony, a picturesque riverside town known for its vibrant and artistic community and two time utopian society. This event will feature a unique hands-on learning format along with traditional artists talks. Attendees will engage in experiential learning activities  exploring the town with their cameras, along with exclusive artificial lighting workshops supported by Robert's Camera, exhibitions, talks and the world-famous dance party. 

Rooms are limited for this event, but the town does have many VRBO and Airbnb. Special student housing will be offered in a dormitory style (bunk bed per room) at $45 per person in a bunkbed room with 26 beds total. You can add this accommodation during registration. There are shared bathrooms at the end of the hall. The conference is not responsible for any lost items left in the property and will ask students to store valuables in their vehicles.
