Got a project idea for raising asexual vis awareness? Want to attend the largest North American ace gathering in history? Read on!
This is a second announcement for the International Asexual conference in Toronto, as part of the Asexual World Festival (25-30 June 2014), coinciding with WorldPride. For more on the conference and to register please go to the WorldPride events calendar and the registration form.
For further information including help with accommodation and travel please see this thread.
Taking place at the Rogers Communications Centre of Ryerson University in Downtown Toronto on 28 June 2014, the International Asexual conference will be an exciting gathering of leading activists and educators (such as David Jay, Sara Beth Brooks and Swankivy), community members from all over North America and beyond, and interested public, press and researchers. Planned activities include:
- Talks by leading vis/educators
- Panel discussions with (optional) audience participation
- Opportunities to table and present projects, and of course
- Free lunch and CAKE!!
We want to take a call for ideas of asexual projects that we can either showcase, enable or get off the ground at the International Asexual conference. The concentration of such a large part of the community in one place is a rare event we are eager to make the most of. If you have any ideas, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reply to this post.
The motto is “The conference would be a great opportunity for…”
How the conference could help
- announcement, call for volunteers
- tables / show and tell during lunch
- anonymous surveys
- filming/photographing in the breaks
- photography project
- video minidoc
- school/college article
- written anthology
