Our keynote speaker is WCYA Alumna and Faculty member Kekla Magoon. Time is set aside for readings, a pop-up gallery, and screenings for all participants during the weekend.

Reunion Dinner for the Decades

Did you graduate in a year ending in 6: 2016, 2006, 1996, 1986? If so, we invite you to join us for a reunion dinner. Re-connect with your classmates and meet others who graduated the same year but from a different program. Reunion dinners are an add-on $50 cost to the Symposium registration.

Last year we had an incredible thought provoking discourse in true VCFA fashion. The conversations and connections were extraordinary. We hope you will come join us this year!

Registration is now closed.
