From the very beginning of the National Arts and Crafts Conference at the Grove Park Inn, our seminar presentations have been so popular that we have always held them in the spacious Heritage Ballroom. It soon became apparent that attempting to hold a traditional question-and-answer session with each speaker afterwards was impractical in a large ballroom, so in its place we began offering daily Small Group Discussions.
While the safety restrictions in place during the current pandemic will prevent thirty or forty people from crowding into a meeting room at the Grove Park Inn, the virtual classroom environment will enable us to continue to discuss topics of interest to Arts and Crafts collectors. During the month of February, we will be hosting our annual Small Group Discussions on weekdays via Zoom. Once you have registered for the conference and have logged in, you will be able to access the link to any of the live discussions. If your schedule prevents you from participating in the live discussions, you will be able to watch at your leisure a recording of any of the Zoom discussions to be stored on our On-Demand page.
We are currently in the process of selecting the topics and leaders for our Small Group Discussions, but as each is finalized we will list them here, so please check back.
