We're Getting Ready for 2017!
Since the convention is still a few months away, instead of including specific details, we've simply supplied summaries of what panels and workshops are. If that's not enough, there's also a picture of goats to hold you over.
Panels will be hosted in the HMS Auditorium. Panels have more of a presenter & audience format. That's not to say there won't be audience participation, it all depends on the presentation! Typically audience members will be there to learn something new. Not surprisingly, a panel is typically composed of three or more members.
These are hands on. Participants will be standing and actively doing work the entire time. Professionals are there to guide you through the activity, and will lend their expertise to you as needed. Participants are there because they want to try something new, or practice budding skills with a professional.
