This year Kansas City will host the 2012 Alliance of Artists Communities Annual Conference at the The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Conference Center. The Alliance of Artists Communities (http://www.artistcommunities.org/) is a national and international network of residencies and communities that support artists as they develop new work. Some of the most well know residencies for emerging artists are affiliated with the alliance, so this is a fabulous opportunity to network with these organizations on your home turf!
Registration for students costs $225 before September 7, but there is an opportunity for KCAI students to attend the program by volunteering some time! Spaces are limited so be sure to submit your application to email@example.com soon.
Contact Calder Kamin (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in learning more about the conference, AAC or need help with your application.
