Dear Friends,

I would like to humbly thank all those who came out on Saturday for stepping out in style and supporting the Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium. It brought me such joy to see everyone having so much fun and getting into character. All funds raised from the benefit will go directly to the execution of the Symposium on April 7th, 2013. 

Also, hearty congratulations to the winners of the auction items; enjoy your excursions! Oh, and if we happen to pop into your head while on one of those excursions, post a photo on our EALS Facebook page for all to see, or tweet it with the tag #EALS2013. Raynel and Alex will have all the photos up on Facebook very soon. But until then, you can go on Instagram and search for #EALS2013.

And, of course, we would like to again extend our warmest appreciation to the HamiltonianGallery for providing such an amazing space. Please be sure to check out their upcoming exhibitions.

If you haven’t registered yet, I urge everyone to pre-register and join the conversation at EALS2013. It is going to be the biggest and best Symposium yet. Find out more information at, and read more on our blog: Tickets to EALS 2013 can be purchased at

Once again, thank you for supporting this great forum for arts students and professionals. I and the rest of the EALS team look forward to seeing you all at the symposium.

See you in April. Cheers!

Steven Dawson
