Proposals received by December 1, 2023 will be given priority consideration.

Share your talent and expertise with the hundreds of emerging artists!

Workshops are scheduled in either 50- or 100-minute sessions. If you are participating in other areas of the Festival, we will gladly work around those commitments.

Developing a workshop can be as easy as adapting a class lesson or showcasing a new method or strategy you have created. While this is a great experience for students and faculty, it’s also an great opportunity to further professional development goals or add to your tenure portfolio.

Proposal Considerations

  • Proposals should be inclusive of all participants, no matter their background, skill, or ability.
  • Workshop leaders should have a professional background as a practicing artist or arts educator, or commensurate experience. Graduate students (with faculty mentorship) are encouraged to submit workshop proposals.
  • KACTF is unable to provide honoraria/stipend for workshop presenters.
  • Proposals that promote or sell a product, recruit/hire, or intend to market an organization, company, or service will not be selected.
  • All leaders will be asked to complete KACTF Region 3 Anti Bias training (1 hour video series).
