Academic and professional submissions are invited for peer review for ICON11: The Illustration Conference. The Conference will be in Kansas City, Missouri, from Sunday, June 28 until Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
The first two days of the conference are devoted to the Education Symposium and workshops; the second two days of the conference consist of main stage events with speakers, panels and presentations representing a broad range of specialties from the fields of illustration and design.
The ICON11 Education Symposium seeks to explore how educators can inspire students to cultivate their individual voices and perspectives while situating themselves in the marketplace in viable and sustainable ways. The multitude of contemporary mechanisms to create and distribute work have expanded the opportunities for illustrators and redefined the creator/client relationship. How do educators incorporate these realities into their teaching?
The deadline for abstracts submission is July 15, 2019.
