We’d like to remind everyone that registration for THATCamp Performing Arts will open on April 1st. The conference will take place at the CUNY Graduate Center on June 20 and 21. We will be accepting registrants on a first come first serve basis and have room for 70 participants, so sign up as soon as possible once registration opens. When you register you will receive an email that your registration has been accepted and then another email confirming that you registered before the conference filled up if you are one of the first 70 registrants. More specific information about the registration process (including a place to actually register) will be made available on the 1st.
Some other questions you may have about registration and the upcoming THATCamp:
How much does it cost to register for this thing?
Nothing. That’s one of the great things about THATCamps, registration for them is always little or nothing, which is a great way to open up the participant base to as wide and diverse a group as possible.
Who can register for THATCamp Performing Arts?
Anyone really. While this THATCamp was envisioned as a place for practicioners and scholars of theatre to come together to talk about the impact of technology on performance, it is always great to have eager voices from outside of NYC and even from other fields.
How do I keep up with everything about THATCamp Performing Arts?
We encourage all applicants, participants, organizers, and onlookers to sign up for a Twitter account and follow news, announcements, discussions, and general hype coming from our profile (@THATCampPerfArt) and the global THATCamp hashtag (#thatcamp). Also, if you don’t already have one, go sign up for a Gravatar account.
Who do I contact with any questions about registration, travel, etc.?
You either send a message to our Twitter profile (@THATCampPerfArt) or email us at thatcampperformingarts[at]gmail[dot]com.
What kind of workshops will be offered?
We haven’t yet finalized a workshop schedule because we want to know what you are interested in. If you are interested in a certain tool or technology that is relevant to the conference, post it as a comment in reply to this post, tweet it to us or send us an email. Or even better if you know a tool and can teach a workshop on it, let us know and we’ll find a place for you in the schedule. Workshops are a great way to expand your knowledge base and skill build and we hope to offer a strong array of them for you at THATCamp Performing Arts.
That’s all for now. Looking forward to seeing everyone in June!
