The ARLIS/NA Mountain West Chapter and The Wild West Chapter of VRA are teaming up to bring you a virtual conference in 2016. We would like to cordially invite you to submit proposals for the Virtual Conference 2016. With an extended deadline we also have decided to broaden the scope. Please feel free to submit a proposal for any project you have completed or that is a work-in-progress. The only criteria we ask proposals be limited to is work within the arts.
The extended proposal deadline is Monday, August 1.
Based on the success of the Mountain West Chapter’s new virtual conference format, we are eager to use the virtual format again. Similar to the last virtual conference, we need a diverse set of presenters. If you have an interesting project that you are currently working on or recently finished, please consider submitting a proposal to present it to your peers. Please note, this call for proposals is open to any; not only members of VRA and ARLIS.
