The Canadian Society of Decorative Arts 37th Annual Symposium

September 26, 2019 - September 29, 2019

The CSDA-CCAD is hosting its 37th Annual Symposium and General Meeting in historic Kingston, Ontario from September 26-29.

Honouring the past and learning about current practice in the decorative arts is reflected in this year’s theme: Trends and Traditions. It will feature an exceptional line up of lectures and events led by a stellar group of regional, national and international scholars, experts, curators, collectors and leading contemporary makers of decorative arts.

Symposium delegates will also enjoy exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to private and public collections and studios, and visits to important sites and cultural attractions in the area on guided walking tours. And, of course, delegates will share warm hospitality, fine food, entertainment and stimulating conversation with friends and fellow lovers of the decorative arts.

Kingston is itself a worthy destination. Perched on the shores of Lake Ontario, the “Limestone City” has a rich heritage and possesses a wealth of architectural graces befitting a city that oncewas capital of colonial Canada. Today, it is also a vibrant cultural hub of many multidisciplinary artists and institutions. Indeed, the city motto is, “Where history and innovation thrive.”
