BEFORE YOU APPLY
Before you apply, you should know these things:
We consider applications for the following kinds of presentations:
● Posters - we accept posters in 24x36 or 36x48 (landscape or portrait), and 36x60 (landscape). These are common sizes for professional conferences are sized to fit our display stands. Each presenter will have one print free of charge in the Digital Learning Studio.
● Exhibitions/Demonstrations - Artists in all media are encouraged to show their work at MiM, and all faculty and students are encouraged to think broadly about the kinds of work they can present. Cases, pedestals, tables, and wall space are all available to show student work.
● Performances - Spoken word, dramatic, and musical performance are all encouraged. MiM can provide performance space, a piano, and amplification upon request.
● Oral Presentations - Each presenter will have a 15 minutes to present AND take questions from the audience. There are three kinds of oral presentations:
○ Individual Presentations - these can be either a single student presenting on their own, or a group of students presenting a series of papers on a single theme or subject.
○ Roundtables - A group of students presenting or discussing issues around a single topic with each other.
○ Panels - A group of students presenting and discussing issues around a single topic with the audience.
We ask that:
● Students presenting Posters or Demonstrations, or Exhibiting Art spend at least 1 hour at MiM with their work. The MiM committee will schedule a time for you to present and will work with you and your instructors to make sure you can participate at your scheduled time.
● Students giving Oral Presentations or Performances plan on being at their session for at least an hour. Speakers will generally have a15 minutes to present and take questions, but we ask that presenters attend the entire session as a professional courtesy. Students who are performing may be given more time if they communicate with the MiM committee.
