Call for Proposals: Furniture Society Conference 2016

CRAFT / FACTURING: AN EVOLUTION OF MAKERS + ENTREPRENEURSHIP FS 2016

Furniture Society Conference, Philadelphia, PA

Craft-facturing addresses a contemporary community of Makers who are socially engaged, collaborative and digitally savvy. New paradigms for making and production, sharing and distribution are emerging that both support and challenge the more traditional role of the craftsperson in our culture. The 2016 FS conference will frame this moment in Philadelphia's rich environment as a unique and vital site of past and future crafts activity.

Programming at conference aims to offer multiple perspectives. In recent years the programming has blended artist presentations with panel discussions on contemporary topics relevant to the studio furniture community and the conference theme.  Presentations range greatly from technique driven topics to highlighting individual practices, such as historical or contemporary makers important to the studio furniture field and emerging makers presenting their talented approaches to studio design/build practices.

The planning committee is interested in individual or group presentations and panel discussions that expand on the conference theme. The dates for this event are June 23-26, 2016 co-hosted by the University of the Arts (UArts) and The Center for Art in Wood. Please submit your programming proposals for the 2016 Furniture Society Conference by September 30, 2015.
