While the aim of our conference is to explore new ideas in a safe and supportive space, we understand that some of the presentations will explore themes that might be sensitive or confronting for some. We encourage everyone to read the program ahead of time and to step out as required. There will be a quiet space available for use at all times and our committee members will always have an open ear.
