Panels & Workshops

In addition to our guest programming and special events, AWX will host a full schedule of attendee-run panel discussions and presentations on a variety of topics: anime and manga, costuming, Japanese culture and folklore, even dance instruction!

This year, we’ll also have a dedicated hands-on workshop room where you can make crafts, learn new art techniques, and participate in interactive demonstrations all weekend long! You can perfect your comic-inking skills, explore new cosplay techniques, or learn the delicate art of origami.

Panel and workshop submissions for 2015 are now open! If you would like to present or run an attendee event at AWX, please fill out the panel submission form.  If you’re interested in earning a free panelist badge, please familiarize yourself with our Panelist Badge Policy.
