SNAG in Conversation

SNAG In Conversation is virtual monthly gatherings for members and non-members to share experiences and knowledge and to build relationships.

These convenings were originally conceived in response to the disruption of COVID-19 to educators and studio artists. The conversations were so successful in providing space for communal resources that SNAG is pleased to continue them. All are welcome!


In Conversation with Educators

Join fellow educators from all institution types to discuss a variety of topics and issues.  Share experiences and resources and bring your questions to a group of peers. Whether you’re a college professor, teach workshops, or classes to young adults this conversation is for you.

Meets every 3rd Friday of the month at 3:00pm Eastern on Zoom.
