We want this event to be much more than sharing the latest technical information on vulture conservation. So we are developing the Artist Corner - a place for participants to share their passion for these birds through various forms of art.

These are some of the things we are preparing for the event:

  • LIVE mural painting
  • Scribing – illustration of conference talks
  • How to sketch a vulture session
  • Vulture Photography exhibit and contest
  • Poetry session
  • Music and dance session
  • Silent auction of vulture art, books and photos for conservation action fundraising
  • Artist booths

If you are an artist and would like to be at the European Vulture Conference and promote your artwork, here are several options we have created:

OPTION A – 125 €
