Taking Photos or Videos?

We welcome students and guests to capture all those special memories through photo and video during the event and for personal use.  But if you’re doing a project, please check-in with us out of respect for our participants (they have the option to agree to a media release form).

We also ask that you share what you capture with us so we can feature it on our social media (we’ll give you credit of course).  Be sure to follow/tag us:

Coming in from out of town?

Housing is not guaranteed, but we’ll try our best to house everyone if you notify us by June 29, 2017.  Please email Emboscada (Cynthia) with the nights you need a place to stay, any restrictions, and if you’ll be driving.

Please note that most workshops will be held in the Hyde Park neighborhood on the Univ. of Chicago campus.  If you are flying into town, we highly recommend Midway Airport (versus O’hare) as it is much closer to the event.
