Due the uncertainty that the current pandemic has caused, we will be unable to schedule the Sketching in Practice Symposium, at the planned time of May 09, 2020. We are working with presenters and our wonderful hosts at ECUAD to reschedule forthe next available time. We thank the dedicated board members, and passionate presenters whom have already contributed their time and energy in this years planning, and will work hard to make sure it does not go to waste.

Wishing all the best of health, and safe and sketchy times, and we look forward to being in touch with you very soon.

Summary – The Sketching in Practice Symposium (SKiP) brings together people that think, ideate and communicate through drawing. This year, we are highlighting the voices of BIPOC practitioners. We are particularly interested in learning about Indigenous ways of thinking and knowing. SKiP encourages proposals from fields such as education, dance, design, visual art, anthropology, science, architecture, geography, virtual reality, literature, graphic recording, film making, among others that explore sketching as a transformative practice.

We are excited to share our four part keynote series. Stay tuned for announcements in the coming days.
