Upcoming Conference

EMBRACING CHANGE

SPESC Regional Conference 2021

University of Texas at Dallas - Richardson, TX   |   October 29 - October 30, 2021

EMBRACING CHANGE is the title of the 2021 Society for Photographic Education's South Central Regional Conference (SPESC). This year's conference will explore the rapid changes in photographic practice, relating to web, video, performance, installation, and interactive environments. 

This hybrid conference will invite participants to share strategies and innovative perspectives for addressing the continuing rapid changes in photographic practice, relating to web, video, performance, installation, and interactive environments.  Through dialogue and exchange, the aim is to foster an understanding of the connections shared by creative professionals and scholars working in areas such as contemporary art, social media, commercial photography, video, and education. This hybrid conference will be comprised of both virtual and in-person events.

The unexpected, the emergent, and the transitory serve as beacons in this shifting landscape, paving new avenues for discovery as well as career opportunities.  The goal of our discussions is to provide guideposts for navigating the future for the student, professional, artist, scholar, and educator.
