APHA and FDH invite proposals for presentations, demonstrations, and workshops that explore the technological and cultural matrices of art printed on or made from handmade paper. Today's practitioners and scholars have a rich archive of historical production methods and societal uses of art on paper to draw from in their work and research. Be it decorative, instructional, devotional, or functional artwork, how can this matrix of origins and innovations be retrieved, shared, and developed? What have we brought forward to fit what we make and use now, and what might we embed for future makers and researchers?
