  • Workshops – designed to share and inform with the opportunity for audience participation, workshops are either 20 or 50 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions
  • Demonstrations – demonstration sessions showcase a technique, method, project, tool, resource, pedagogical idea etc and are scheduled for 20 minutes plus 5 minutes of questions
  • Performances – performing groups or individual artists from any educational setting are encouraged to apply with performances limited to 40 minutes, including an additional 60-minute workshop with an APME clinician
