SECAC 2020: Commonwealth

November 30, 2020 - December 11, 2020 $135
commonwealth S E C A C 2020 V C U arts

Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts is honored to host the 76th annual meeting of SECAC from November 30-December 11, 2020. As its theme, the conference will engage the concept of commonwealth as an ideal of common good that pervades the political landscape of arts and educational institutions. We will question the complexities of a commonwealth, both in its original utopian form and its attendant failings as a colonial structure. With its rich history and diverse arts community, the city of Richmond will serve as an excellent setting to explore the 2020 conference theme through panel and round-table sessions, special events and exhibitions, and countless opportunities for individual exploration.
