A few quotes from artists and critics who have attended.

“Not only have I learned and experienced so much, but most importantly to me, I have met the most awesome people who I can now call my friends . . .The Conference has made my life so much richer.”

– Molly Geissman , New Mexico, who will be attending the Conference for the eighth time


"The Conference itself is like a force of nature at this point, appropriate to its setting!"
