We at WTF understand that not everyone is able access two weeks of back-to-back synchronous Zoom sessions. That’s why we want to share the amazing resources WTFCon has to offer with as many people as possible through asynchronous viewing. After all, the hybrid future of theatre is here, and it is now!
Read on for our top ten reasons to get your all access WTFCon pass while you still can.
1) Experience WTFCon on your own time
Couldn’t make it to the live session? No problem! Experience WTFCon when it’s most convenient for you by viewing session recordings asynchronously for a full ten days. No matter your schedule, you can still access these two full weeks of transformative sessions. After all, nothing goes better with your early morning coffee than burning down the patriarchy.
2) Turn your theatre-making idols into professional contacts
Many of our top industry professional speakers have graciously offered their contact information to attendees for further discussion. And as we all know, networking is a key component to all industries. Want to be social media buddies with Alex Chester, Rebecca Lee Lerman, and Michaela Ternasky Holland of Mixed Asian Media? With these professionals as invaluable resources, you can invest in your craft by establishing these connections!
3) Access valuable training at the best price point for you
Accessible theatre and education includes granting everyone an equitable opportunity to learn, which is why ALL WTFCon tickets are Pay-What-You-Can. We firmly believe that this programming should be available to everyone, no matter their economic reality. Take advantage of this accessible pricing by snagging your WTFCon pass at a price that works for you.
4) Accommodate your own learning style
Learning styles are vastly diverse, and that’s a beautiful thing! With asynchronous viewing, you can stop, start, and rewind to accommodate any access needs you may have to make for the best learning experience possible! Soak up all the knowledge Karen Olivo and Eden Espinosa have to share over the course of these 10 asynchronous days of viewing. Make WTFCon work for you, not the other way around.
