Event description

Description

The 6th annual Alberta Gender & Sexual Orientation Alliance (GSA) Conference will be located at Central Memorial High School on Treaty 7 land in Calgary on Saturday November 18th, 2017.

DETAILS: The conference aims to provide support for Alberta K-12 students and teachers in the formation and maintenance of GSAs/QSAs. There will be specialized workshops specific for students and teachers which will address a variety of topics including: how to start & strengthen a GSA, gender & sexuality for K-9 students, GSAs in rural communities, anti-oppression tips, newcomer supports, arts-based activities, and many more. ASL Interpretation will be provided.

Lunch will be provided, during which there will be a resource fair.
In early November, those who have tickets will receive an email regarding the workshop schedule and will then be able to register for workshops. Details will also be posted here, on www.calgarysexualhealth.ca/programs-workshops/gsanetwork, and on the Alberta GSA Conference facebook event page.

Workshops will be released to conference participants in early November, if you have tickets keep an eye on your email so you can sign up!

PARTICIPANTS: Please be aware that this conference is ONLY for students and teachers (or other school staff supporting a GSA). NOTE: If you sign-up for a ticket(s) and are unable to attend, please cancel your ticket(s) as soon as possible so that others can attend. If you have questions about cancelling your ticket, please contact: hmutch@calgarysexualhealth.ca.

ACCESSIBILITY: Washrooms throughout the school have been updated with no-door entrances, as well as wheelchair accessible stalls in each washroom. The elevator will be available for access to workshops on the 2nd floor. Ramps are built in next to small stair sets within the first floor. Washrooms will be all-gender and all washroom options have stalls. An ASL Interpretor will be available for the keynote presentation as well as other workshops as needed.


If you're from a school in Edmonton & area, before applying for a travel bursary please contact Lauren Alston (albertagsanetwork@gmail.com) as she will be organizing bus trips from areas in Edmonton to the conference.

If you have multiple schools in your city/town it is best to all travel together to save on costs. This will help us cover more travel costs for other schools!

La 6e édition du Alberta Gender & Sexual Orientation Alliance (GSA) Conference prendra place sur les territoires du traité n° 7 de Calgary, le samedi 18 novembre 2017 à l’école secondaire Central Memorial.

DÉTAILS : La conférence a pour but de fournir un soutien aux élèves et aux enseignants de la maternelle à la 12e année dans la mise sur pied et le bon déroulement d’une alliance gaie-hétéro/allosexuelle-hétérosexuelle (AGH-AAH). Il y aura des ateliers spécialisés qui seront spécifiques pour les étudiants et les enseignants abordant une variété de sujets, entre autres, comment mettre sur pied et assurer le bon déroulement d’une AGH/AAH, l’identité du genre et la sexualité pour les élèves de la maternelle à la 9e année, les AGH/AAH dans les communautés rurales, des conseils pour lutter contre la discrimination, le soutien des nouveaux arrivants, des activités artistiques, et plus encore.

Tous ceux qui seront inscrits par la mi-octobre recevront un courriel avec l’horaire, et pourront s’inscrire aux ateliers qui les intéressent. Plus de détails seront affichés sur cette page, sur https://www.calgarysexualhealth.ca/programs-workshops/gsanetwork/ et sur la page de l’évènement Facebook du GSA Conference.

PARTICIPANTS : Cet événement est seulement ouvert aux élèves et les enseignants ou autres membres du personnel qui appuient les AGH/AAH.

TRANSPORT : Il y a un nombre limité de bourses de transport pour les écoles voyageant à Calgary. Nous offrons jusqu’à 500$ par école. Les bourses seront distribuées sur la base du premier arrivé, premier servi. Si vous êtes intéressés, veuillez envoyer un courriel à hmutch@calgarysexualhealth.ca. S’il y a plusieurs écoles dans votre région qui veulent venir à la conférence, il serait préférable de voyager ensemble. De cette façon, nous pourrons aider à couvrir les frais de transport pour les autres écoles !
