Costume Commission Seeks Student Leadership Proposals

USITT’s Costume Design & Technology Commission offers students an opportunity to get more involved via its Student Leadership Initiative (SLI) session planned for USITT 2016 in Salt Lake. The Commission is seeking proposals from students who would like to present on their ideas and achievements before a national audience of professionals, educators, and their peers.

“We are particularly interested in innovative work and thinking from the newest generation of designers and technicians,” said organizer Steven Stines.

This year’s SLI session will be held on Thursday, March 17, moving from the traditional Saturday slot, and will feature multiple student presenters. Each will have 15 to 20 minutes to present. Past conferences have featured three to five presentations.

PowerPoint slide shows are a recommended format, but the format itself can be innovative. A Mac and projector will be available. There may not be reliable Internet access in the conference rooms.

Proposals should include the following information:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Cell Phone
  • School
  • Degree
  • Concentration
  • Topic
  • 100 Word Project Abstract
  • Email letter of support from faculty member

The deadline for submitting proposals is February 5, 2016. Submit to sstines@arts.ufl.edu

Vetting of proposals will be completed February 12, 2016.

Slide shows are due March 1, 2016, with revisions completed by March 12.
