CraftNOW’s 2021 symposium Environmental Effects will examine how communities and interiors shape our experiences, when sustainability issues are expressed through craft, and the greater impact of our contemporary material culture. Longer presentations will be complimented by shorter Pecha Kucha style talks.
Dr. Kelli Morgan will be this year’s keynote speaker. She contributed the chapter Crafting Diversity in our recent publication Craft Capital: Philadelphia’s Cultures of Making. Dr. Morgan is a curator, educator, and social justice activist who specializes in American art and visual culture. Dr. Morgan has held teaching positions at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University, Wayne State University, and the University of Michigan, as well as curatorial positions at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, the Birmingham Museum of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
