About SGCI Multiple Layers

No pressure! Southern Graphics Council International will embrace a satellite model for 2023.

Rather than one large conference, this experimental model will allow for multiple small events! Want to participate? Submit a proposal below. Content is open but see some example from our previous conference: MakeReady

Proposals should include a budget-if applicable. SGCI can provide some support depending upon the proposal. Suggested items to consider include room rentals and supplies. SGCI will require any host to record their event so we can host it on YouTube for all members.

Use this as an opportunity to tell us about you and your practice. We will accept proposals from independent artists, commercial shops, organizations and schools! SGCI has amazing and diverse artists; tell us about yourselves!

Not all parts of an even need to be broadcast. Part of the event must be online, but we encourage sites to create unique events in their communities! Events can be broadcast in any language. Special attention will be given to those who have not hosted an event with SGCI.
