Party at the End of the Patriarchy Conference
Are you ready for an online conference that is anything but business as usual?
Want to spread your creative wings, have daily stretching time, and dream together?
As Toni Morrison says, "If you can't imagine it, you can't have it." We have to imagine the world we want to bring to fruition. The first person who made a car, had never seen a car. The first person who made an airplane had never seen an airplane.
Anjali Nath Upadhyay and D'Juan Owens say, if we're going to envision a world after patriarchy, it's going to take some belief, and you've got to be picky about who you let into your space. Safeguard your imagination. This is our time to speak truth about power.
Here is where we talk with each other with the intent to act.
Oppression wants us to be pessimistic. This has to start in our imaginations. Get ready for a revolutionary battery recharge.

Safe space vs Brave space:
Safe space doesn't exist- but each day we'll make an agreement about behavior. It means we will not tolerate any sort of hate speech or trolling on this event and people who do it will get booted with no refunds. Totally serious here. This includes anti-LGBTQIA+, racism, sexism, ableism, classism, etc. By taking part in this conference, you agree to abide by the rules of safe space.
What is brave space? We WILL be going to ask people to get comfortable with being uncomfortable in looking at systemic and individual bias. We will be asking people to consider learning more about these topics to create structural change. This will involve brave space, being open to making mistakes, admitting your intentions were not the same as the results of your actions and we hope you will step into that with us.
Platform: We will be using the Zoom meeting platform, so you can see other attendees and network with folks in small groups in the spaces between presentations, like at a real conference! If you would like to be more anonymous you can change your name in zoom and not engage your video.
Hearing: Zoom allows us to have live closed captioning, so if you have hearing issues, this event will still be accessible to you.
Seeing: If you are partially sighted or blind, we can arrange to get the materials to you in advance for your screen reader.
Mobility: This conference is online, so you can take part from home! If you want to make sure you get your questions answered live, please feel free to email questions in advance to email@example.com and we can get them to our presenters ASAP.
Language: Right now we do not have a plan to have simultaneous language translation. If that is something you feel like we should offer for next time, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Times and Days and Zones: We surveyed our list and people told us they wanted a conference during the week. That's why we're choosing to do this conference on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We are located in Pacific Time. (1 hour behind Mountain Time, 2 hours behind Central Time, 3 hours behind EST, 4 hrs behind Halifax Time, 2 hours ahead of Hawaii time.) We try to keep the conference as accessible with time as possible for everyone, so we're starting at 9am PT (12pm ET) each day, and ending around 4pm PT (7pm ET) each day.
Cost: If cost is a barrier, we have a limited number of scholarships available, so if you want one, email us at email@example.com and tell us about your situation.
