Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Conference Scholarship Award
The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) is pleased to offer 10 diversity, equity and inclusion scholarships to attend its 2020 conference, Grit to Gold: Future Fifty, in Philadelphia, PA from May 20-23. Scholarships are made possible by a grant from the John and Robyn Horn Foundation.
As an organization committed to supporting and advancing the professional practice of artists, designers, jewelers and metalsmiths, SNAG recognizes the many barriers to participation in opportunities that exist in the field. Through these scholarships and other initiatives, SNAG hopes to expand our community and welcome new voices to the conversations that will take root at this conference.
The application period for this award is now closed.
