Event description

Description

The 7th Annual Alberta GSA Conference will be held on Saturday November 17th, 2018 at Jasper Place High School on Treaty 6 land in Amiskwaciy Waskahikan (Edmonton) Alberta.

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. There will also be a French workshop available each block, thanks to our partners at Francophonie Jeunesse de l'Alberta!

Lunch will be provided, during which there will be a resource fair.

In October, those who have tickets will receive an email regarding the workshop schedule and will then be able to register for workshops. Once you get
your tickets keep an eye on your email so you can sign up and create your schedule!

PARTICIPANTS
Please be aware that this conference is ONLY for students and teachers (or other school staff supporting a GSA).

CANCELLATIONS
If you sign-up for a ticket(s) and are unable to attend, please cancel your ticket(s) right away so that others can attend. If you have questions about cancelling your ticket, please contact: albertaGSAnetwork@gmail.com

ACCESSIBILITY
The entire conference takes place on the 1st floor with the exception of the cafeteria which is down a flight of stairs next to an elevator. Washrooms will be all-gender with stalls and are wheelchair accessible. An ASL Interpretor will be available for the keynote presentation as well as other workshops as needed.

TRAVEL BURSARIES
With huge help from the Edmonton Pride Festival Society and the Northlands LGBTQ2S+ Rural Alberta Youth Grant, we are able to supply travel bursaries for participants! There are a limited number available, however each bursary is for a maximum of $500 to cover the cost of travel for schools. If you have multiple schools in your area it is best to all travel together to save on costs. This will help us cover more travel costs for other schools! To apply please email albertaGSAnetwork@gmail.com using the subject “Travel Bursary Application”.

If you're from a school in Calgary & area, before applying for a travel bursary please contact Hilary Mutch (hmutch@centreforsexuality.ca) as she will be organizing bus trips from areas in Calgary to the conference.
