Ice Sculpter Tim Linhart on (and at) EG Conference

“The importance of the EG conference can not be overstated. When the news cycle and public discourse is focused on all that is going wrong, EG is focused on what is hopeful, uplifting, interesting and truly astounding.

The whole cast of characters, both presenters and attendees, is like the best collection of Christmas presents imaginable. Each one is a hidden treasure just waiting to be asked what they are about. Their stories range the breadth of human experience and the most bizarre, unique, and unexpected.

My mind was stretched and expanded and the EG experience was a great catalyst to reinvigorate my creative process. My next project will be to build a frozen cello using my own blood.

The fact that EG organiser Michael Hawley managed to find even me hiding under a frozen rock on the opposite side of the planet is evidence of the extent to which they are willing to go to make the conference interesting and diverse. “ — Tim Linhart

At EG11 (2017) Tim Linhart shared his uncommonly beautiful, and decidedly chilly work with the audience. Tim is an ice artist with 35 winters of freezing his fingers in buckets of ice water.

Part of the session entitled Small Worlds, you can watch Tim’s talk here.

30 April - 2 May 2020

Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a superb program for EG2020. However, in light of growing and legitimate concerns regarding the rapid spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which have gutted international events of all sizes, we have made the difficult decision to put EG on hiatus until it is once again deemed safe.

We know how much each of you look forward to EG and we were looking forward to seeing old friends, and welcoming many new ones, but we do need to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and partners, especially those traveling from afar.

We will be in touch in due course with future plans.
