Hi everyone, 

Just wanted to send out a brief reminder that today is the last day to submit your Featured Session application for our upcoming Unconference on April 27th. 

We'll be reviewing and selecting Featured Sessions this week and notifying the session leaders by Wednesday or Thursday. There's already some stiff competition as the quality of sessions we're receiving is AMAZING. Stay tuned to updates on our Tumblr to find out more about the Featured Sessions as we get closer to the big day. 

You can, of course, still present at the Unconference by coming early on the morning of the 27th and getting your session on the schedule (But these are first come, first served. The Featured Session is the only way to get a guaranteed spot!). 

Also, today is the last day to get your Early Bird ticket at $22.09 (including Eventbrite fees). After today, we will be raising the price to $35, so get them while they're cheap! Remember, your ticket includes breakfast, lunch, and happy hour drinks, so really it's a bargain all around. :)

Thanks and hope to see you all there!

Hi everybody, 

Thanks to everyone who joined us last night at Wix Lounge for our meetup on Humor, Play, and Humanizing Organizations -- especially our wonderful speakers: John Powers, Noel Hidalgo, and Seb Chan and Aaron Cope. It was an inspiring and entertaining group of presentations that tackled everything from Star Wars to taxi cabs to Security Cats. I laughed, I cried, I learned some stuff.

I also wanted to follow up with some more information about the upcoming Unconference we're hosting next month, as many people approached me with questions about what to expect and how to get involved. So I wrote up a quick handy list of Everything You Could Possibly Want To Know About The ArtsTech Unconference to help explain: 

1. The Unconference is taking place on Saturday, April 27th at AOL's offices near Astor Place. We're taking over all 3 floors of their office space!
2. It's a day-long event that will run from 9am-6pm
3. Your ticket includes breakfast, lunch, beverages and snacks throughout the day. Yum!
4. The attendees (that's you!) determine the unconference session topics on the morning of the event. You simply arrive early and claim a spot on the schedule.
5. We're curating a couple of Featured Sessions ahead of time. Submit a Featured Session application by April 8th to get a guaranteed spot and a free pass. 
6. An ideal Unconference session is much more informal than a typical conference session and can be a group discussion, a presentation, a workshop, a hacking session, a screening, a performance, a skillshare, a demo, and more. Think of this as an open forum for discussing interesting ideas, timely topics or new projects.
7. You don't need to lead a session to attend. You can come just to learn, participate and meet people. 
8. Sessions are not for self-promotion. Rather, this is an opportunity for conversation, collaboration, and knowledge-exchange. 
9. Early Bird tickets are only $20 (+ $2.09 Eventbrite processing fee). Early Bird RSVP ends on Monday, April 1st.
10. It's most fun when you team up with a friend to lead a session or attend the day. 

If you have questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to send them my way!

If you want to get involved as a volunteer or a sponsor, shoot me an email at [address removed]. 

Thanks and hope to see you at the Unconference!
