Invitation to Organize Activities
Sat. Feb. 1, 2020
Do you want to connect with student, activist or community groups committed to social justice? Do you have a great idea for a workshop, performance, exhibit or other activity? We want to hear from you!
Please submit this form by Monday, November 18, 2019.
Goals of the event:
The main goal of this event is to build relationships between student groups, researchers, activists and community organizations working on issues of social justice, difference and diversity. The purpose of this ‘Call’ is to invite those with an activist orientation (broadly defined) to submit a proposal to host a workshop, performance, exhibit or information table. We encourage participatory activities that may involve art, music, drama or other experiential, embodied modes of interaction.
- Using the form provided, send a title and brief description of the proposed activity.
- Make clear its relevance to social justice.
- Explain how your activity will prepare participants to take next steps.
- Suggest any groups you may wish to invite as collaborators.
- Indicate if you wish to organize a display table.
- Identify who is proposing and will organize the activity. Include contact information.
Those proposing activities are responsible for mobilizing the necessary resources to mount the activity. Forum organizers will co-ordinate the event, provide food, space, childcare, and technological support, as well as outreach and promotion of the Forum’s activities.
For more information, contact NSJF@brocku.ca.
In 2020, the Forum will be held at Brock University (Glenridge campus). This event typically attracts over 150 people from both campus and the community and explores a wide range of issues. Activities are proposed and organized through an open call to campus and community-based individuals and groups committed to social justice.
The Forum is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome. A free lunch and childcare are provided with registration.
