5. Registration has begun for the Hand-in-Glove 2013 Conference in New Orleans hand-in-glove.org
Press Street is proud to be the host organization for Hand-In-Glove 2013, a national conference for independent visual arts organizers working at the crossroads of creative administration and studio practice. Hand-in-Glove 2013 will take place in New Orleans Thursday, October 17 through Sunday, October 20, 2013. Hand-In Glove is an itinerant conference started in 2011 by ThreeWalls in Chicago, IL for artists and organizers participating in a national dialog on creative activity happening outside of traditional institutions. The conference aims to facilitate supportive and deepening conversations on the pragmatic realities and imaginative possibilities of organizing exhibitions, re-granting programs, publications, residencies, public programs, platforms for projects, and a variety of other programming that challenges traditional formats for the production and reception of art at the grassroots level. The conference welcomes spaces and projects that are self-organized, independent, and noncommercial. It also welcomes organizations that started small but have grown big, retaining the artist-run values and priorities that were a part of their founding. More on that on their website here.
