The American Society for Aesthetics is pleased to announce the Virtual Summer Aesthetics Festival to enable the sharing of work-in-progress by ASA members with others for the purposes of dialogue and discussion. This service will be offered from May through August 2020.

What ASA members need to provide:

  • A paper or panel presentation arranged by the ASA member to be live-streamed on Facebook-live, Zoom, or a comparable vehicle widely available via Internet at no charge for persons interested in viewing
  • A specific date and time when the live stream will be available
  • Information on how to access the session or sign up for it, depending on the medium used
  • Information on how to obtain a copy of the paper in advance of the session, if the member wishes to make that available

This information should be sent by e-mail to the

What the ASA will do:

  • Provide minimal review to ensure that the presentation is appropriate for distribution by ASA as part of the Virtual Summer Aesthetics Festival

o   Any paper or panel previously scheduled for the cancelled 2020 Pacific or Eastern ASA programs will be automatically considered appropriate for distribution

o   For others, the Secretary-Treasurer will ask one or two officers or trustees for a quick review for appropriateness

o   The goal is to screen out material inappropriate for publicity by ASA, such as scammers, material unrelated to aesthetics, etc.

  • Distribute a list of available presentations with names of presenters, titles of presentations, time and date of presentation, access information

o   The list will be distributed weekly or bi-weekly, depending on interest, to ASA bulk email, web page, ASA-Facebook, Twitter, and Philos-L

Persons with questions about participation in the festival should contact secretary-treasurer@aesthetic-online
