Conference Schedule

May 26th & 27th, 2018

+ May 28th Deep-Dive Workshops

(Saturday and Sunday mornings will be live-streamed.)

This is an interactive, community-building experience where we're all activators and pollinators. As such, our schedule is going to be flexible and dynamic. Here's a basic outline of what we've imagined so far:

DAY 3 DEEP-DIVE 

(OPTIONAL ADD-ON)

 

 

Monday, May 28, 2018

Deep-Dive Workshops

Tannur Ali, Donnie Maclurcan, Carmen Spagnola + Holly Truhlar

This is your chance to go deeper and integrate the weekend's experience. Tannur Ali, Donnie Maclurcan, Carmen Spagnola + Holly Truhlar will be facilitating full day workshops with smaller groups. Participants will make a deeper connection with a community of practice and explore themes from the weekend more intimately.

This optional deep-dive is scheduled from 9:00am to 4:30pm with a 90-minute lunch. The cost for the deep-dive workshop is $95.00 when registered as a package with the full conference ticket, and $125.00 when registered separately. Participants can pick between any of the Monday workshops offered. More information on each workshop will be posted a few weeks before the conference.


To do the work required of social justice is to know that you’re not perfect, can’t be perfect, and that part of the process is learning how to fall and get back up – with grace and fortitude.
