Every year, Western students generate revenue through special fundraising events, in order to participate in the Regional and National Conferences. This seciton is devoted to announcements related to SPE fundraisers, promotional materials, and meetings surrounding SPE. The Society for Photographic Education is a nonprofit membership organization that provides and fosters an understanding of photography as a means of diverse creative expression, cultural insight, and experimental practice. Through its interdisciplinary programs, services, and publications, the society seeks to promote a broader understanding of the medium in all its forms through teaching and learning, scholarship, and criticism.
With the generous support of Western’s Art Department, the Dean’s office, Associated Students, and kindness of countless others, 11 photography students were afforded the opportunity to go to New York City and Balitmore for the National SPE Conference in March 2014. Garth Amundson and Pierre Gour were delighted to help out with the trip and look forward to SPE in New Orleans next year.
