If you ever wanted to dig deeper into a topic or want to teach something in greater depth than is normally offered, this symposium is for you. Please contact the autocrat if you are interested in teaching.

We will also be having a youth symposium. Instead of craft projects, these will be A&S classes retooled for a younger audience. Background checked chaperones will be provided. So let the autocrat know if you are interested in teaching Ansteorra’s future.

To make the day all that much sweeter, their Excellencies will be choosing their Arts and Sciences and Bardic Champions in addition to
their Youth Rapier and Chivalric Champion. Come vie for these coveted titles.

September 13, 2014 – Laurel’s Prize Tourney
Kemah Community Center

LPT is a yearly arts event wherein artisans bring entries to display and receive feedback on.  There are no judges.  Despite the name, it is not a competition, so much as a friendly time and play to share art, excitement, resources, and knowledge.

Scared of competition?  Afraid your arts aren’t period enough?  The word ‘documentation’ gives you flashbacks to school? Don’t worry – this is not
an event about judging – it’s about art and excitement.
