Arts & Sciences: 

As is tradition, the Kingdom’s Tempore Atlantia judged A&S competition will be held at Spring Crown. The time period for this event is pre-history – 1000 AD, and is open to displays of items from any art, science, or culture of that era. If you would prefer, you may also display your works, without entering the judged competition.
If you are planning to participate, please send an email to contests_deputy@moas.atlantia.sca.org, with an estimate of how much space you will need, and, if you are participating in the competition, an idea of what types of item(s) you will bringing, so that we can endeavor to arrange for judges with knowledge in the appropriate area(s).

A virtual display option is also available for challenge participants who are not able to attend in person. Please reach out to the Persona Challenge Coordinator, Esa inghean Donnchaidh, with any questions or concerns at SCAMOAS-WOMEN@sca.org

We are inviting all the children of Atlantia to participate in an open Arts and Sciences display at Crown List.  The theme is “What does the SCA mean to you?”.  All children are welcome to participate, no documentation needed.  The display can be about anything, done in any material.  Ideas are drawn pictures, dressing a doll, spinning, weaving, swords, models, etc.  Please use materials that your children use at home, nothing special is needed.   All children will receive a gift for participating. 

Set up will be in person in the morning, then pick up will be after the tournament.  I ask that all children be accompanied by an adult for the set up and pick up.   There is no need to sit with the display, I will be doing that.
