The 2016 SPE-NE Conference aims to consider photographic education as not just something that happens inside the classroom, but within the larger arts community. Many non-profit organizations, community centers, art collectives,foundationsandmuseums work with educators at all levels to ensure that those non-textbook experiences are accessible to our students.

SPE itself emerged at a time when academic art departments were beginning to offer photography in their curriculum. In recognition of this newly emerging field of academia Nathan Lyons, Beaumont Newhall, Aaron Siskindandother prominent artist-educators started this community that we are a part of today. SPE is not alone inthemission of furthering photographic education and critical engagement. Many other non-profit and arts organizations have the same passion for shared knowledge and arts education. This conference hopes to continue the collaborative conversation that started in Rochester back in 1962.
