VRAF Regional Workshops

The Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) is pleased to announce the host sites for the 2016-2017 VRAF Regional Workshop Program. Thanks to a second year of generous support from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, this program will allow the VRAF to more fully realize its mission to promote scholarship, research, education, and outreach in the fields of visual resources and image management.

The 2016 workshops are (with links to the workshop pages):

Learning to Look, Looking to Learn: A Workshop on Visual Literacy at Colorado College, Colorado Springs, CO, to be held on February 17, 2017

For the 2016-2017 second phase of this program, four grants of up to $3000 are being offered to support an instructor stipend and travel expenses, a stipend for the local organizer, catering, and other minor expenses incurred by the host institution.  With the VRAF Regional Workshop Grant, host institutions will be able to offer a workshop without the burden of developing it from within, and provide valuable programming not only to their local constituents, but to their broader region. This opportunity is open to Visual Resources Association (VRA) Chapters, VRA affiliates, related organizations, and academic institutions with information management programs. For a reasonable registration fee, the workshops will provide an immersive experience on a single topic, framed in a manner that is relevant to image management professionals, users of cultural heritage information, and the larger information community. The call for host sites for the 2017-2018 VRAF Regional Workshop Program will be announced in late spring, 2017.
