Greetings unto the esteemed artisans of AnTir, 

 

The Laurels of AnTir in partnership with Their Excellencies of Madrone and The Ministry of Arts andSciences invite artisans of all skill levels to journey to Athenaeum, in The Barony of Madrone, to showcase your artistic skills to all the Realm! 

 

YOU spoke; WE listened

 

This is a non-competitive Body of Work event, and it is your chance to display the breadth of your artistic abilities and receive valuable feedback and commentary from the Laurels of AnTir and other artisans in a relaxed, collaborative, and engaging environment. 

 

This event is also open to those who do not want to display. If you just want to come peruse the largest arts and sciences display in the kingdom and interact with the artisans- this event is for you too!!! All are welcome!!

 

Specifics:

  • Body of work display: Artisans can choose to have a full table (8ft) or half-table (4ft)to display on. They bring everything they want to show off/receive feedback on and display it in their allotted space in a pleasing manner. There is no limit to what you can display, and documentation is not required. If you have documentation that you wish to put out, it is sometimes helpful; however, the focus is on conversation. 
  • Artisans register in advance for how much room they need for their respective displays. 

 

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: May 15th, 2018

  • After registration cut-off, attending Laurels are paired with registered entrants thus ensuring that all entrants have been able to meet with Laurels in addition to all the other artisans and observers who will be in attendance. 

 

How it Works 

  • Once the event starts, Artisans sit at their tables and Laurels and non-entrants start to circulate. Typically Laurels will approach the people on their dance card first. 
  • Each laurel typically spends a minimum of 30-45 minutes with each artisan on their dance card (usually 2-3 artists)talking about their work. They are not judging, assigning scores, or providing structured critique guided by a form. It is a very informal conversation between artists about the work on display. Often artisans might have some works-in-progress that would like feedback on, recently completed projects, learning new skills, or a desire to showcase the breadth of their skills. 
  • Once Laurels have completed their dance card, they are free to roam around and meet with as many artists as they want. Laurels are encouraged to hand out largess for displays that have impressed them, or circle back to displays that they saw earlier but didn't have a chance to visit. It is all very casual with a bit of structure to keep the event moving.
  • Every hour a color is announced and artists that have been assigned that color are allowed to get up and roam around and visit with other artisans about their work. At a minimum that is two hours of face time with other artisans. 
  • Artisans should have some kind of notebook to capture feedback, insights, and conversations.
