A conference to challenge us all!!
Dates: October 13 – 15, 2016 (Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon)
Locations: St. Ann’s Academy and the Royal British Columbia Museum (RBCM)
Cost: $60 ($25 low- and no-wage earners)
This conference aims to be place of encounter, an opportunity to come together to talk about the challenges and possibilities of leadership and activism, as well as creative ideas and practices that can begin to respond to the pressing and very complex gender issues of our time. No single conference can respond to all aspects of gender injustice, discrimination, violence and exclusion of the past and the present. But we want to begin the conversation, and through questioning, listening and making, explore and discuss our challenges and our ways forward.
The conference will include panel discussions with prominent women in the arts, politics, and Indigenous, social and environmental movements. Through their stories, we will learn how they teach, lead and act at times overtly, at other times subversively, but always purposefully and courageously upon the problematic gendered stage of the past and present in our institutions and society.
