In her keynote address, “Creative Survival in a Time of Change and Challenge,” Zeder will confront her own concerns about how we as artists, teachers, students, parents and human beings can navigate “the troubled waters of our times” with gratitude, grace and compassion — and without fear. “I believe the arts are a life raft, as they bring us together, engaged in a common purpose for our mutual survival,” says Zeder. “Whether we are making art, teaching art, appreciating and experiencing art, we are invited to step out of ourselves and into a larger world and to ask ourselves HARD questions about ourselves and each other.” Open to all convention attendees.
