SDA’s first Craft + Concept Intensive 2015, MADE/AWARE, has found the perfect setting at Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts. Tucked away on a beautiful campus in the Great Smoky Mountains, the intensive will offer participants meaningful interactions with accomplished artists and designers whose community art practices have global impact.
Arts Activism / Socially-Engaged Art (SEA)
Natural Dyeing & Low Impact Colorants
Ethical Fashion / Sustainable Cloth
Our paradigm-shifting presenters are committed to being the change they’d like to see. They’ll be our guides as we contemplate our own visions for a better world and our facilitators as we use our own creativity to build awareness about issues of concern in our own communities.
Presentations, discussions and demonstrations will alternate with hands-on mini-lab experiences and interactive events. Ample time to network with other participants will help spark ideas for new projects, dynamic partnerships and creative collaboration. Get complete information about presenters & topics HERE.
Arrowmont will offer pre-intensive workshops on related topics from October 4-7. Included presenters are Yoshiko Wada, Ann Morton, Carole Frances Lung, Mary Zicafoose, & Sara Goodman, Lisa Klakulak, Catharine Ellis.
