BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE

Your Pacific Region state leaders are building for the future. In early August, the Pacific Region art education leaders gathered in San Diego, CA, for their regional leadership conference. These leaders shared, mentored, encouraged, and supported each other. They also found time to be creative and enjoy the beautiful setting. One of the closing activities of the conference was the Unity Project that began last spring at the NAEA Convention in New York. Under the guidance of James Rees, Pacific Region VP Elect, each state association was asked to bring a set of prints based on the idea of unity to the conference. In our closing activity, these prints were compiled into a suite of prints (one from each state) for each state association to take home and share. Each state was able to share the context and connection to unity in our region with their particular print. In our final closing discussion, we extended our regional connections to the ongoing NAEA initiative on diversity and inclusiveness and the Position Statement on Diversity in Visual Art Education [Adopted April 2014; updated March 2016]. We also made a commitment to the future of the Pacific Region and NAEA with work we did and the follow through that is to come from each of us.
