Breather Conference.

We should all go to this. It is August 30-31 at Agnes Scott College.
Breather Conference in Decatur

(from their website)
The first annual edition of Breather: A Design Conference will take place on August 30-31, 2007, in Decatur, Georgia. A full day of events is planned to take place on the Agnes Scott College campus on Thursday, August 30, with additional activities that evening and the morning of August 31st throughout Decatur.

Breather will bring together artists, architects, interior designers, graphic designers, landscape architects, and other individuals concerned with design and its effects. This multidisciplinary approach to the subject will also be open to students from design programs in the area. The unique benefit comes from the interdisciplinary cross-pollination in both the audience and the presenters. Members of the design community are invited to “take a Breather in Decatur,” to be stimulated outside their usual routines, and to benefit from the ideas and practices of other design disciplines.

Breather immediately precedes the Atlanta Journal-Constitution/Decatur Book Festival taking place in Decatur during the same weekend (August 31 –September 2, 2007.) Information on the full activities of the Festival can be found at decaturbookfestival.com.

Sponsors for Breather include Iconologic; Agnes Scott College; Lightroom Studios; Davis-Moye & Associates; Decatur Arts Alliance; and Standard Deluxe. Breather will provide an opportunity to foster public awareness of the benefits of good design in public spaces and encourage strategies for design as an indispensable element of a sustainable world.
