art(WORK)ing: a FATE Southeast Regional Conference

Sep 14, 2018 - Sep 15, 2018

Location: UCF Art Gallery

How are art programs working toward taking chances and exploring new curriculum, projects, and objectives? What is successful when trying new ideas and approaches in the classroom? What are the experimental failures and how do you compensate and reassess?

Please join us for a Southeast Regional FATE Conference at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida for a symposium to share your new and developing pedagogical approaches, curriculum, and projects. This will provide the unique opportunity to hear fellow art colleagues share their experiments, successes, and failures and how they will continue to change in the future. This event is open to art faculty (studio, design, art history, digital media, etc.), administration, and graduate students (current or recent grad).


When: 5:00pm September 14  – 8:00pm September 15, 2018


Where: University of Central Florida, School of Visual Arts and Design, UCF Art Gallery, 12400 Aquarius Agora Drive, Orlando, FL 32816
