2018 Student Ambassador Mentors

The Student Ambassador Program pairs student members with visiting international guests at each conference to encourage networking between early designers and the Institute’s global colleagues. Three student members will be selected based on their areas of interest, compelling application, and letter of recommendation.

Joining us at USITT 2018 will be Agata Skwarczynska, a visionary scenographer from Poland; Qin Wenbao, a teacher in the Stage Design Department of the National University of Chinese Theatre Arts; and Carolina Jimenez Flores, a performance designer, author, and choreographer/director from Mexico.

“Being a part of the program changed my view of what is possible, showing me that there are many opportunities in the world of theatre,” said 2015 student ambassador Sarah Robins. “I feel very fortunate to have been chosen to participate in this fantastic opportunity. This experience has changed my life and how I view my work as an artist, as a student, and as an individual.”

Student Ambassadors will receive free conference registration and a luncheon with the three guests. This opportunity is available for those who are USITT Student or Early Career members.
