SPE Midwest Regional Conference

August 18, 2010

I’ll be attending the Society for Photographic Education’s annual Midwest Regional Conference from Sep 30 – Oct 2 in Kalamazoo, MI.  I encourage you students to attend as well.  SPE is an especially student-friendly organization.  They encourage student participation in all their conferences.  The regional conferences are especially affordable:

(early bird price, register by Sep 9 / regular registration)

  • Student SPE member: $10 / $15
  • Student nonmember: $20 / $25
  • Student volunteer:      FREE

Click here to learn more about registration.

If we can get a few of you together to carpool and share a room or two, the cost would be very reasonable.  Kalamazoo is about a 4 hour drive.  There are many cheap lodging options. But the conference is the same weekend as homecoming, so book soon.

The conference is a great opportunity to learn about new developments in the field, make contacts with peers, and generally get inspired.  In addition to hearing artists talk about their work and academic discussions about photography, you can view the many exhibitions in town, register for workshops, participate in portfolio reviews, and exhibit your work in a special student exhibition.

You’ll hear more about the conference when classes kick off at the end of the month.  In the meantime, please visit these websites for more info:
