The Future of IDKE!


Thank you so so much for the wonderful support and love this past year! As you’ve been hearing through our various updates on Facebook, IDKE is being restructured to become a more up to date, stronger, and better organized event. And, like any remodel, it takes a lot of hard work, and also, a little bit of time. IDKE currently set to become a bi-yearly conference, with hopes of coming back to host an event in 2015. Between now and then, we encourage the community to stay active by sharing show updates, audition announcements, and more with the IDKE Facebook Page. Stay tuned for updates, call for organizers and volunteers, and show announcements!

Lots of Love,

The IDKE Steering Committee
