Speaking of CAFS, a couple of other newsy notes for the burgeoning crop of events next year,
• Exhibitor applications are due by this Friday, December 5th for MoCCA:, which moves to a new venue for the 2015 Show. 2015’s event will be held April 11-12th.
• Tom Spurgeon has a thorough report on 2015’s Linework, which will be held in Portland, OR April 18-19. The show is expanding to two days for 2015, and the week after MoCCA timeframe may open up touring possibilities. The event has a new framework—shifting exhibitors and guests for each day—an innovative approach:
LWNW co-founder François Vigneault elaborates: “Our hope is that changing our exhibitor lineup for each day will make Linework NW even more fun for our exhibitors. I know from personal experience one of the frustrations of exhibiting is that you get so little time to check out the show you are at, because you’ve got to stay at your table. With this new format, an artist could table on Saturday and have plenty of time to participate in a panel or visit with friends on Sunday, or vice versa.” An expanded slate of programming will take place both days in the Norse Hall’s Lodge Room, a much larger venue than last year’s event.
Exhibitor applications are open now until the end of the month.
