Paper Points North 2015 Annual Meeting of the Friends of Dard Hunter

Just as the North Star has served as a navigational beacon to travelers, so the career, art, and research of Dard Hunter have served as inspiration for papermakers, toolmakers, printers, artists, historians, and educators. Come join us at the Friends of Dard Hunter 2015 Annual Meeting, Paper Points North, where we will build upon his legacy while also honoring his life’s work in continuing the tradition of education, dialogue, and research.

Embarking northward to the beautiful Alberta Rockies, the conference will be held at the internationally recognized Banff Centre, a well­respected confluence of art, science, and research. The primary focus of Paper Points North is to question how we honor the traditional methods of papermaking while expanding into new methods of research, innovation, sustainability, education, and activism. The beautiful setting and retreat environment of the Banff Centre will encourage community, invigoration, and exchange.

Attendees of the conference will have the opportunity to tour the Banff Centre’s world renowned artist residency spaces, view the library’s extensive collection of artist books, take a scenic walk, and participate in the weekend’s activities. Also included in the program will be the keynote address, lectures, demonstrations, members’ exhibition, banquet, silent auction, and keepsake exchange. Please join the Friends of Dard Hunter at this idyllic location to discover fresh perspectives together. We will celebrate the history of Dard Hunter and continue his legacy by seeking new ways to educate, research, and innovate with hand papermaking leading as our North Star.
