PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
Each year Haystack hosts a four-day Summer Conference. The format of Haystack’s Summer Conference differs from that of many conferences—it is intimate in scale and allows for ample time for informal discussions with presenters. It also features a studio component, with hands-on workshops providing another way to explore the conference theme.
Conference presenters each gave a talk and workshops, discussion groups, and group activities--a studio workshop component provides a hands-on way to explore the conference theme--were also a part of the conference format.
Conference attendees registered for studio based activities and discussion groups through daily sign-ups.
In a variety of creative disciplines, from the arts to the sciences, makers, researchers, and thinkers are increasingly working in ways that are interdisciplinary and/or collaborative. This summer’s conference brings together presenters from a wide range of fields to examine the impact and potential of these ways of working.
