The call for proposals will be issued in spring 2022.

Educator Conference.  Some days will be oriented to educators and the current application of Mason’s ideas in education today (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday). With morning immersive lessons with experts, afternoon outings to local historical and natural sites, and evening cultural experiences, each day will focus on experiencing the applicability of Mason’s design for K-12 education today.

Atmosphere. The entire conference will be touched by the beauty of the campus, the echo of history throughout the town, and the beckoning of the natural beauty of the region. Local educators, students, artists, naturalists, historians, and agriculturalists will contribute to the cultural and educational experiences of attendees.
