New Conference Artwork by Drew Christie
Take a peek at the top of this page and you can't fail to miss our glorious new conference artwork, the creation of the extraordinarily talented artist and animator Drew Christie. Drew is currently wowing film festival audiences around the globe (including those at Sundance and Sundance UK) with his animated short Song of the Spindle. Amongst many other accolades, he has just been nominated for a 2012 Genius Award by Seattle's Stranger magazine. And he's got some history with Harry Smith. Harry is one of the many eccentrics profiled by Drew in his beautiful book Strange Americans. And he's the subject of the unmissable animation below - the best possible introduction to both Harry and the Anthology of American Folk Music. Press play, enjoy - and keep the paper submissions coming.
