We're two weeks away from the MAEA 2017 Conference in Detroit, MI. I hope everyone is as excited as I am. Here are some tips to consider as you prepare for a wonderful weekend of creating, connecting with old friends, making new friends, and getting rejuvenated and inspired.
1. Bring your phone/camera
There are always so many interesting workshops and things to see. We hope that you'll share your photographs with all of us on the MAEA Facebook page.
2. Sketchbook or Notebook
Don't forget something to write down ideas, notes, and inspirations from the workshops you attend.
3. Comfortable (yet, cute) shoes and a sweater
While in the midst of inspiring workshops and as you explore the artistic sights of Detroit you'll want to be comfortable.
Bring your water bottle so you can keep your energy up while enjoying workshops, key speakers, and tours.
5. Plan Your Days Out Ahead of Time
Map out your time at the conference to ensure you get the most out of your days and nights.
6. Get Their Early
Make sure you give yourself some extra time at the start of the conference to orient yourself to the space so you can easily get yourself settled and to your first workshop without rushing.
See you in Detroit!
