What is a workshop?
A workshop is an opportunity for you to step out of your comfort zone and make new connections and conclusions. We spend roughly 15 minutes getting to know the people in the room and then jump straight into a student, faculty or industry lead workshop that is guaranteed to leave you walking away with new knowledge or skills to better your success towards your career. Workshops are followed with a designated time for you to ask questions, get advice, get portfolio feedback...any way you want to utilize this time is up to you.
I’m not an Advertising major, can I still come to After Hours?
Of course! We believe amazing work happens when there’s a group of diverse minds behind it: diverse by sight, but also by thought, experience, and everything in between. The more perspectives we have at the table the better. Our only requirement is that you come curious and ready to collaborate.
Workshops are a unique opportunity to learn alongside your creative peers. We practice building confidence through networking opportunities, but mainly our workshops are a chance to get a better understanding of what opportunities are available to you after your time is up at the UO. We work hard to make sure that our workshops cover a wide range of topics and are are dedicated towards helping you master your craft. To make our audience more inclusive, workshops will be live streamed through the @AfterHoursUO Twitter account in order to encourage on and off campus community.
Why should I go to a workshop?
How do I lead my own workshop?
STUDENTS: Request to lead a workshop by emailing email@example.com with the subject line “Request a Workshop.” Then, please include your name, year, and a few sentences explaining your workshop idea and how you plan to share it. Once we get you approved, you’ll work one-on-one with an After Hours team member to decide on a presentation date and ready your workshop plan. Presenting with a partner or team is encouraged, however we request only one person submits an email on behalf of their group.
NON-STUDENTS: Faculty and professional-lead workshops will also be scheduled through the After Hours team. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Request a Workshop,” introduce us who you are and specify what you’d like to come teach us about so we can get you on our calendar. We’d be thrilled to have you.
STAY IN THE LOOP!
