Subject: Re: Possible Signwriting Workshop
Information would be nice to hand out at the workshop at least. I may be
able to lay out some information on a booth too. I will see what I can
work out. The workshop will probably be set up for 75 people. People are
signing up to attend any number of workshops over two days, but not signing
up for any specific workshop. So, I'm basing my guess on the size of the
room. They are hoping for several thousand people to come through
Deafestival itself (exhibits, workshops, etc.), but since this is the first
time, we really have no idea. It could be as few as several hundred. So
.... if you would like to send me info, I would be happy to circulate
however much I can and what I don't circulate there, I can take to the
other conference in October where I will do the same kind of intro workshop
and that conference will be smaller maybe about 300 total. Not sure how
many of the 300 will actually attend the SW workshop. All the same, I can
leave the information out and see how people respond.
