Annual Conference

Normally, SEA holds a two day conference with over 40 different presenters from across the country.  Activities include keynote presentations, panel discussions, artist-led sessions, one-on-one mentoring sessions, round table discussions, Juried College Art Competition, Idea Pitch Competition for Creatives, plus fun late night activities. Due to Covid-19, there will be no in-person conference this February. However, we have a lot of other virtual programming planned.

Regional Events

SEA has teamed up with a variety of schools and organizations to help spread SEA events across the country.  Programs vary from workshop series to one day conferences. Details for 2020-21 events is still TBD. Stay tuned!

Workshops / Panels


​​​Connecting emerging artists with successful practicioners is one of our main focuses.  Throughout the year we collaborate with area organizations and educational institutions to hold a variety of panel discussions and workshops.  These events are usually free and last only a couple of hours.​ Right now all programming will be held virtually.
