Regulations for the 2023 Workshops - Deadline: November 5, 2021.
If the abstract submission does not explain how the majority of the time will be hands on, then it will likely not be under consideration.
Voice professionals are invited to submit a proposal for a workshop to be considered for presentation at The Voice Foundation's Annual Symposium. The focus of the workshop should be on the "live" demonstration of your techniques with singers, actors, patients, or audience members. The workshop duration is 55 minutes, and we request that you plan for the majority of the session to be spent in hands-on interaction with the participants.
Workshops should be designed to be presented without the use of audiovisual aids such as overhead projectors, slide projectors, or videotapes.
