FATE’s 16th Biennial Conference: April 6th-8th, 2017

KCAI’s Foundation Department will host To the Core and Beyond, FATE’s 16th Biennial Conference from April 6th - 8th, 2017 at the Intercontinental at the Plaza in Kansas City. There FATE members will gather as leading voices in fundamental art and design instruction and examine place, geography, introspective and reflexive actions, pedagogical values, and the potency of origins across the world.

Kansas City is a centrally-located destination that features renowned cultural institutions and a flourishing arts community. KCAI is honored to provide a platform where engagements and dialogues focusing on the obligations of core instruction in art and design will be fostered and challenged through questions such as the following:

How does one find models for being in the world as artists?
How does our investments in fundamental principles transport the next generation of artists and designers beyond the traditional paradigms and beyond the classroom?
How is your program initiating collaborations with cultural producers?
Influences from inside and outside the studio drive the development of Foundation programs and their students. In response to the conference theme, a broad spectrum of artists and academics will examine our reach as educators, and question how we instill world values through Foundation instruction and diverse programmatic structures.
