The 42nd Annual TASA conference in Austin, TX , was hosted by St. Edward's University. The 2010 conference theme, Art + Community, explored the open exchange of ideas, influences, policies and actions that artists and communities engage in both at the local and global level. We hope to explore the reciprocal relationships between art and community, with sub-themes ranging from environmental issues, green art and recycling to social activism, collaboration and community art. This theme also closely related to values found in the St. Edward's University mission. St. Edward's has three distinguishing characteristics: the courage to take risks, an international perspective, and the commitment to provide educational opportunities for students of varied cultural, religious, educational and economic backgrounds. Students at St. Edward's are helped to understand themselves, clarify their personal values and recognize their responsibility to the world community. We were excited to be able to bring the members of TASA to Austin for a fun-filled and exciting conference.
