To Prospective Yuma Symposium Presenters,

Symposium presenters come from a wide variety of media and from all walks of creative life including those in academia, emerging artists, international icons and working makers at various points in their careers. The qualities that unify the over 250 top-notch presenters who have appeared in Yuma are passion and commitment to their art or craft, the quality of their work and their willingness to engage, inform and—usually—entertain. Presenters leave as ambassadors for Yuma, Arizona Western College and the Symposium.

Fill out my online form.
There are tons of Wufoo features to help make your forms awesome.

Please submit all of the following information:

 1 A current resume--with your name as you wish it to appear on publicity, address, telephone numbers, e-mail, website url
 2 5-10 digital images of recent work in Jpeg file format 2400 pixels along the long side of the image at 120dpi in CMYK or RGB Color mode. Images should be  representative of the work that you will be presenting.

Keep in mind-----

Presentations run about 1&1/2 hours for slide lectures and 2 hours for a combined lecture and demo or 1&1/2 hours for demonstration  only. The lecture or demo is done one time during the symposium.
Priority is given to lectures with demos. The audience is from 150 to 200 people. An attempt is made to represent as many disciplines as possible. 

The symposium pays for travel and hotel. Honorariums are $300.00.


Deadline: January 15th each year. All proposals must be received by this date.
