Check out some of the highlights of the upcoming conference here.
The keynote speaker will be Rebecca Kamen. She is currently being featured by the Rhode Island School of Design website and by SteamConnect. Much of Rebecca’s work has centered on how art and creativity can be used to enhance our understanding of science. What better way to connect a creative community?
Here is an excerpt from the article about Rebecca Kamen, Visualizing the Unseen:
In her work with neuroscientists and astrophysicists, Kamen says that she’s “able to make connections and see parallels that they never saw before. You start seeing universal patterns at all different scales!” Kamen is passionate about these connections, almost childlike in her exuberance. “I’m trying to bring back the awe and wonder about the world around me that I remember feeling as a kid.”

The 365 Challenge for VAEA
At the 2012 VAEA conference, we received the book 365: A Daily Creativity Journal: Make Something Every Day and Change Your Life! by Noah Scalin. How many of you read the book and accepted the challenge? If you started this wonderful and invigorating process, we would like you to show off some of your work at the 2013 VAEA conference. Please contact Katy Clarke, and we will compile a group of teachers who attempted this challenge! Contact her as soon as possible so she can begin planning this sharing opportunity for the conference!
