Workshop Submissions for 2017

New year, new site- and Con-Volution 2017 looks to take another “next step” in becoming the kind of event our attendees want to see!

Every year, we get more and more feedback of how much everyone loves to get their hands in and make things, learn new skills, and actively participate in the programming they attend. This year, following our parent corporation’s big shift to an educational nonprofit organization, we want to find new ways to share skills and have fun doing it!

We want to provide workshop and active involvement opportunities for artists, for makers, costumers, writers- you name it! We’re looking for molding and fabrication, make-up tricks, art techniques, writing workshops, science experiments, poetry slams and songwriting sessions, collaborative exercises and costuming techniques- if you can teach it, we want to hear from you!

Please use the form below to send us your suggestions BEFORE JULY 15th, 2017. This is NOT a request for suggestions- we are actively looking for people to put forth ideas that they are willing to teach and present. After the June 30th deadline, the Events team will be going through the submissions, picking the ones that work best with our theme, direction, and capabilities, and will then contact the workshop leaders to confirm details, and place them on the schedule.

We will still have some traditional panels, and discussion groups, but we’re looking for a majority of our content to shift to being hands-on in focus, so put on your thinking caps, and bring us your ideas!  Any questions about the process can be directed to the Events team at
