Conference Details:

There will be invited speakers sharing their work, such as authors, researchers, artists, and others. Check out Who’s Coming at: http://acesnyc.org/whos-coming/

Space will be reserved for caucus style meetings for those who have different intersectional experiences, rotating between groups throughout the day. For example, a POC Caucus, a Trans/Non-binary Caucus, Aromantic & Allosexual Caucus, and more.

Un-Conference Style workshops. An un-conference lets attendees shape how they would like to spend their time, removes traditional conference hierarchy, and encourages spontaneous connections. We will take time in the beginning of the day to set an agenda collectively, for a select portion of the conference workshop time slots.

Interactive workshops such as ones on Fast Friending and creating a Collective Experiences Mural.

Lunch is included in a conference ticket with vegan and gluten free options provided. Please indicate dietary restrictions on the ticket questionnaire.
