A presenter is me
I've just been accepted to present my thesis at the 2011 American Art Therapy Association Conference! How exciting!
The presentation is mostly going to be the same as my thesis workshop (minus the workshop part), but I might add a few slides to include questions/considerations that were brought up the first time I presented. It's a 30 minute presentation, so not a full length "paper" presentation but rather a digital poster. I was a little intimidated to do a full hour by myself, so this is the right amount of time and probably the right size crowd for my first solo professional presentation!
This, along with a presentation I'm doing next month with my supervisor and other intern at my site will help flesh out the "PRESENTATIONS" part of my resume - which is currently not there because I've only done the one.
This year's conference I'm planning to be all over the place. I'll be selling my pottery in the marketplace, displaying work in the digital gallery, presenting, and will maybe even submit a 60 second film to the short film festival. That along with going to presentations, the art studio, and maybe a workshop. Because it's not too far I'll be there the whole time, instead of showing up Thursday afternoon like the last conference (Thursday morning seems to be the best day for presentations). And I'll be throwing business cards all over the place because hopefully I will be looking for a job either in December or January once I finish my license.
