Submit a workshop proposal
What we're looking for
At previous events we've had workshops on everything from camera building to paper circuits, deep learning to yarn making, virtual reality to bookbinding, and cocktail making to sim-card hacking. Anything goes!
If you're enthusiastic about it, we are too! You don't need to be a professional or an expert to lead a workshop.
What it's like
We'll give you one of our workshop tents for up to four hours to give a workshop on any subject. Each workshop seats 30 people and comes equipped with a screen and speakers – we can also provide some equipment (such as soldering irons) on request.
Workshops operate on a first-come-first-served basis to prevent problems with people not showing up – they are extremely popular and usually oversubscribed!
Before the event our Speaker Operations team will ensure we can host your workshop. During the event they'll assist you with setup, as well as advising you on how best to run the workshop.
If your workshop doesn't fit well in our workshop spaces we will put you in touch with one of the Villages who may have more suitable facilities, and can publish your workshop in the schedule.
After you submit a proposal, it will be considered anonymously by a diverse selection panel. For more on the EMF selection process, see our guidance.
