PA Autism Training Conference: Call for Artists

On behalf of the Office of Developmental Programs, we are pleased to invite artists on the autism spectrum to exhibit their artwork virtually during the 16th Annual Pennsylvania Autism Training Conference (#PATCIgnite2023).

We would like to offer artists on the autism spectrum an opportunity to showcase their art (such as drawings, paintings, photography, etc.) and crafts (for example jewelry, greeting cards, pottery, fabric crafts, etc) on a virtual “art gallery” which will be linked to the conference materials on ODP’s website.

The art show will consist of images of artwork supplied by the artists, as well as links to their website or email address. Although artists are not being directly compensated, their participation in the art gallery is voluntary and we do not profit from the art display. Links to their website or email address will be shared with all conference attendees who could be interested in purchasing art for sale.

If you’re interested in exhibiting your work, please complete this brief application: https://drexel.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7U4n3Zncq6qPLQG
