About the Threshold Conference

Threshold 2018 will bring together elementary, intermediate, secondary, post- secondary and community art educators. Presentations through hands-on workshops, demonstrations, panel discussions, artist’s talks and research papers can contribute to the theme by focusing on art and students, classroom, studio, cultures and community.

Sessions will be scheduled in 60/90 minute modules to accommodate a variety of types of presentations. There will also be a limited number of 120 minute workshops.

All delegates, including presenters, must register and pay the conference fee. Potential presenters must either join or renew their membership in the BCATA or present proof of membership valid through October 2018.

BCATA i s a non-profit organizations run by volunteers which support children and art education through advocacy, publication of teaching resources and the organization of professional development experiences. If there are conference profits, these go to sustaining the work of the organizations.

The BCATA practice is to offer presenters an honorarium. Members can choose to receive a $100 honorarium ($150 if the session is offered twice).

If you have two different workshops, please submit a separate proposal form for each one. Each would receive an honorarium.

Submission deadline is July 15th, 2018.
