Volunteer Trade Show Demonstrators
The WIT committee is looking for volunteers to help attract new women to woodturning and encourage women turners. To increase women's presence at AAW's 2017 Symposium in Kansas City, WIT is looking for volunteers to demonstrate in the Trade Show. We are compiling a list of women demonstrators and will make it available to vendors. If vendors want someone to demonstrate their tools and don't currently have demonstrators, they can ask women on the list. Click here to apply.
AAW’s Professional Outreach Program (POP) Artist Showcase Opportunity
Each year the Professional Outreach Program (POP) showcases two wood artists at the AAW’s Annual International Symposium. They are either experienced artists who have made significant contributions to the woodturning field but have not received appropriate recognition or emerging artists who have the potential for making significant contributions to the field. The two selected artists each give two demonstrations and receive free Symposium registration plus a small honorarium. Their work is displayed prominently in the Instant Gallery. The 2016 artists were Helga Winter and Jérôme Blanc. Artist applications are invited for the 2017 AAW symposium in Kansas City, Missouri. Applications will be juried by the POP committee.
