Join the CBAA for our 2023 Virtual Symposium “Lessons from Lockdown, Rethinking Book Art Education,” June 2–3, 2023. We will offer several days of virtual content centered around the reinvention of book art education during lockdown, including a panel discussion, keynote address, regional groups breakout sessions, and CBAA’s Annual Business Meeting.

REGISTRATION opens May 1, 2023.
The 2023 CBAA Virtual Symposium encourages members to share experiences and resources from their online adaptations to book art education over the past few years. The pandemic forced radical rethinking about curriculum, participant engagement and methods of delivery. This led to rapid developments in the way book art is taught, learned, and experienced.

Registration is free for all current CBAA Members, and required for participation. As of 2021, there is a new, low barrier, sliding scale membership fee structure, so if you aren’t a member, consider joining or renewing today! This is a fully virtual event. All participation will be through the Zoom platform. Be sure to register on or before June 2, 2023, to guarantee your spot.

Join us via Zoom for a Keynote Presentation with Jenny Wilkson, Partners in Print (PiP) and Erin Beckloff Letterpress Educator of Art & Design (LEAD), Panel Discussions and CBAA's Annual Business Meeting where CBAA President Sarah Matthews will report on the state of the organization. In addition, you will be invited to join individual CBAA Committee Meetings throughout the week to hear about plans for 2024 and learn how you can get involved. All of these events are free to attend for all Members of the CBAA.
