SEEKING ARTWORK! This year SWLAE will be open to all artists
in the national leather/bdsm community. SWLC is about heart and
spirit and we want to showcase the artistic expressions of that
in its many forms. Artwork does not have to be kink-related or erotic
in nature, though those subjects are welcome.
DEADLINE: The deadline for submission is October 31st, 2007. A
pre-selected panel will review all artwork, and selected pieces
will be displayed as part of the Southwest Leather Conference 2008.
SUBMISSIONS: Submission information can be found on the SWLC website
WE ARE ALSO SEEKING SPONSOR FOR OUR ARTISTS’ RECEPTION
We are currently seeking an individual, group or organization who
is willing to sponsor an "Artists' Reception" to give
attendees a chance to talk with the artists in one place.
FOR MORE INFO: Questions about submissions, guidelines and sponsors
can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Now in its sixth year, Southwest Leather Conference has become
known as "The Leather Family Gathering of Heart and Spirit."
Gathering over 600 Leatherfolk and BDSM Lifestylers from all over
North America, SWLC offers a deep, meaningful and creative experience
of Leather and BDSM through the exploration of the interpersonal
and spiritual dynamics of Leather & BDSM Relationships and SM
Practices. SWLC also provides a vehicle for regional leather clubs,
organizations, leather families and individuals to gather and celebrate
the tribe of which we are all a part.
THIS YEAR'S THEME: THE QUEST
What is a quest? A call to adventure. A journey towards a goal.
A seeking or pursuing of something important. A time of initiation
and transformation. An encounter with the self and others. As each
of us embarks on our individual quests, we find common threads that
bind us all together, with our paths ultimately crossing at Southwest
