Penland School of Crafts - Penland School of Arts and Crafts, North Carolina |

2018 SPE Southeast Chapter Retreat at Penland School of Crafts
Friday, September 28 - Sunday, September 30
We are excited to announce the 2018 SPESE Regional Retreat, which will take place at Penland School of Arts and 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 will open to the public for the first time later 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. Registration will open in August, but space on campus will be limited, so we encourage members to register early! A list of alternative accomodations will be available soon.
We are currently accepting nominations for Honored Educator. Please contact Wendy Babcox with your nomination: email@example.com
We are seeking proposals via google forms for presenters in three categories:
Image Maker / Scholar
Panel / Round Rable /Discussion
Teaching and Learning
Deadline: EXTENDED to 6.15.18!
We look forward to seeing you all in the mountains at Penland School of Arts and Crafts in September!
