Women in Creative Careers 2017
On Saturday, November 4th, Bay View will host its 3rd "Women in Creative Careers (WICC) Conference." Alternating each year with the "Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Conference," this half-day event helps introduce young women in grades 5 - 8 to the creative thinking process and encourages them to pursue careers in creative arts fields they might otherwise feel are unattainable.
Girls will have the opportunity to participate in three educational, hands-on workshops led by Bay View faculty members, alumnae, and female volunteers distinguished in their careers. Each workshop will run for approximately 1 hour, and the students will rotate through three workshops over the course of the morning. Each presenter will repeat her workshop three times, to three different groups of students. The conference is limited to 125 young women, and student registration will open in late August, once all the workshops have been confirmed.
In the past, we have successfully brought together many Bay View Alumnae to offer free lectures to students on topics such as jewelry design, illustration, cooking, architecture, casting, keyboarding and branding. This year, we are looking to YOU - our alumnae, faculty and friends of the academy - to assist us in creating interactive, hands-on workshops for the conference. Please use the form below to register as a presenter.
Thank you in advance for your interest in the 2017 Women in Creative Careers Conference! We look forward to seeing you in November!
