VAESA Annual Conference

Unity in Art and Design

Unity in Art and Design describes the coming together of elements to create a sense of cohesion merging form and meaning.

As Visual Art and Design Educators we come together at our conference each year to celebrate all that unifies us as educators. These two days are an opportunity to focus on what we all have in common, what drives us and gives us joy, and to unify us in strength and purpose to ensure we provide the best for our students.

We invite you this year to participate in a very exciting line up of speakers, tours and workshops on the theme of Unity in Visual Art and Design Education.
All Friday participants will receive a show bag with a range of gifts from our sponsors Eckersley and Premier Art Supplies valued at over $25, including a set of the very popular Curiosity Cards from AGSA.
