Raison D’Être:

Teaching and learning together, developing our collective connection to the work, deepening our sense of community… and having a great time getting to know each other better.  

Call for Workshop Proposals:

We invite trems to submit proposals for workshops on topics of Restructuring, Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice. Bilingual proposals, especially in Spanish, are strongly encouraged, as we are preparing to offer our first Spanish language certification in Santiago, Chile, in January 2020/21. We also welcome proposals from other areas of the work. We are open to any potential session that you are excited to share, in the following categories:

  • Work that intersects Fitzmaurice Voicework and Diversity, Inclusion and / or Social Justice

  • Guiding Restructuring towards empowerment

  • Fundamental to Advanced work in Restructuring

  • Applications of Fitzmaurice Voicework and working with underrepresented communities

  • Hybridizations of Fitzmaurice Voicework with one or more other modalities

  • Teaching styles, contexts and challenges related to Fitzmaurice Voicework

  • Great ideas that don’t fit into these categories

    • Example: Cynthia DeCure’s offering, La Voz Boricua: Restructuring and reclaiming our Puerto Rican voices post Maria 

Workshop Guidelines:

  • Each session will be around 1 hour in length, though some 90-minute sessions may be possible. Exact durations will become clear as total attendance numbers and the schedule are finalized. 

  • Two or more breakout sessions will often be happening simultaneously — please let us know if there are minimum or maximum numbers of participants needed for your proposed session. 

  • Please be as clear as you can in your proposal AND be willing to adapt what you do to truly respond to any experiences and observations you have at the Symposium prior to your session. 

  • We will accept as many proposals as the schedule allows.

Call for Performances:

Proposals for pieces of any length and style are welcome. Bilingual performances or performances in languages other than English, especially Spanish, are encouraged. There are two performance opportunities:

  1. an evening of in-studio performances on June 1

  2. short, cabaret-style performances at our final dinner on June 3

To propose a workshop or performance:

Please send the following by April 1st to

  1. Your name and any co-presenters’ names (50 word bio per presenter)

  2. Workshop or performance title

  3. Ideal duration and minimum duration

  4. Brief description

  5. For workshops only: which of the categories above your proposal falls into

  6. For workshops only: articulate the specific aspect(s) of Fitzmaurice Voicework that your session works with, deepens, or illuminates
