WHSTF Workshop Proposal

Workshops are held Friday and Saturday of the festival. You may propose up to six (6) workshops, but we will select up to four (4). Proposals must be received by September 18, but are appreciated sooner. We will notify individuals by October 8 if their workshops are accepted.
We are planning for contingencies to offer some type of virtual experience for young people if the COVID-19 pandemic surges again this fall. Therefore, we ask those proposing workshops to indicate if they’re willing to teach online, and to consider how they would adapt particular workshops to an online format, if necessary.
