Some workshops are intended for specific groups; show respect by only entering spaces that are open to all or intended for you.
ASL accessibility will be tailored as closely as possible to attendees needs – we are exploring interpreters and other options. Email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can learn what your needs are and how to meet them! Deadline for best-case-scenario ASL accommodation is July 4th.
Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House is wheelchair accessible. A full accessibility audit is in the works and will be posted on this page no less than 2 weeks before the event.
We are doing our best to accommodate a scent-reduced environment and request attendees to refrain from use of scented products. Supplies provided through the day will have scent sensitivity in mind and we will work with the venue to refrain from use of chemical/scented products for cleaning prior to the conference.
This conference takes place on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territory.
