Upcoming Conference

The Fierce Urgency of Now

Penland School of Crafts - Bakersville, North Carolina   |   September 28 - September 30, 2018

2018 SPE Southeast Chapter Retreat at Penland School of Crafts
Friday, September 28 - Sunday, September 30

HOSTED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA
CONFERENCE COMMITTEE: Wendy Babcox (USF), Joshua White (ASU), with support and encouragement from Zane Logan (SE Regional President) and Emily Gomez (SE Treasurer)

We are excited to announce the 2018 SPESE Regional Retreat, which will take place at Penland School of Crafts, on September 28-30. Set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Penland offers the perfect environment to retreat, reflect and retool. In his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech, Martin Luther King Jr. referred to what he called "the fierce urgency of now". Fifty years later, we embrace this phrase as the title and theme for our regional chapter retreat at what is widely understood to be a very urgent moment. Hosted and sponsored by the University of South Florida in Tampa, THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW, will feature a diverse array of accomplished speakers whose work addresses the present moment. 

Penland will also showcase their new photography studios, which were opened to the public for the first time this summer. The retreat will also offer an array of creative workshops and a portfolio throwdown.

Penland's facility offers accommodations on their renowned picturesque campus in addition to on-site dining in their legendary dining room.
