Support the UAAC Travel Fund

The UAAC is directing funds towards travel support for students and sessional faculty, but we are also going to you, our members, to seek donations to this fund.

Please consider making a donation to the travel fund to ensure UAAC’s continued ability to bring together as many visual arts researchers as possible at our annual conference.

UAAC Conference Bursary 2020

Exceptionally this year we will be using our travel fund to assist students and CAS members with BOTH membership fees and conference registration. All participants in those categories who have paid for membership in 2020 and conference registration are eligible for this assistance AFTER the conference. We therefore are again requesting donations to this fund. Particularly in this year of uncertainty, your help is needed! Please consider making a donation to the travel fund to ensure UAAC’s continued ability to bring together as many visual arts researchers as possible at our annual conference.
