Many, many thanks to each and every person who shared their work on the Across the Table, Across the Land webapp!

We are in Portland right now, working through the submissions and developing the exhibition component of the project. The range of projects and stories are fantastic, and it is truly a pleasure working through the submissions.

All submissions we received are posted in the webapp, visit here to see the projects and the k12 Challenge entries. We are cross-checking with emails to be sure that all submissions are visible:

If you shared work and cannot locate it after the weekend, send Michael and Namita an email at

Extra special thanks to Jill Foote-Hutton for rounding folks up behind-the-scenes, and to Ayumi Horie for spreading the word through guest hosting opportunities!

What happens now?




The deadline for the exhibition has passed – but the webapp and instagram are ready and waiting for any and all of your projects between now and the 50th NCECA Conference in Kansas City!

So keep sharing with us, posting, tagging, etc. so that together we can keep building an amazing archive of what YOU bring to the tables!!









This is the exciting behind-the-scenes time, where the submissions are examined, discussed, grouped, categorized, shuffled, examined, repeat. By the end of the weekend, we will know which works will be included in the exhibition, and will be making the announcement via the NCECA blog and individual emails by January 15, 2016.

It pretty much looks like this: both of us with computers open, notes scribbling on paper, to be followed with a lot of post-its and sorting, then reviewing the layout of Charlotte Street Foundation, etc. And the dog joining in when she can find a vacant lap.

Watch the instagram @acrossthetable2015 for more posts as we continue to put the exhibition together.
