About the annual NIADA Conference

The NIADA Conference is a wonderful opportunity for artists, collectors, and everyone interested in the expanding world of doll art to experience the cutting edge of this dynamic art form. The conference offers attendees opportunities to meet like-minded people, to inspire and be inspired. NIADA membership is not required to attend, just passion for the art of the doll.

Plans are underway for the
NIADA 2022 Conference & the Academy!

This will be a chance to finally get together and reunite all our NIADA Artists old and new, along with aspiring artists, patrons, and friends.

Our NIADA 2022 Conference will be held in the Hyatt Regency Bellevue Hotel. Sitting on Lake Washington it is just a 20-minute drive to downtown Seattle. Bring your family for a great vacation while attending the conference. There are activities to thrill all ages.

There have been some changes to our usual conference lineup.

Due to Covid/Omicron travel uncertainties, we have regretfully decided to cancel the in-person Dollmaking School that normally precedes the conference. However, we will be offering ‘Mini-Masters’ classes on Saturday morning, where
you can still learn some wonderful techniques from our talented NIADA Artists. You will need to register for these just like you would a regular class. Information will be available at Registration on March 1st.

ALSO, the week of September 15th, the NIADA Academy will hold a Special Virtual Dollmaking Event with several new classes and live interaction with the instructors online.
