Strategic, Supportive, and Intentional Event Planning (+ Naloxone training)

January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Workshop Registration link: https://bit.ly/3FeV8OZ

Workshop Facilitators:

This workshop will cover a wide range of considerations for how to ensure your events fit within you and your groups’ capacities, are speaking to topics your primary audience is interested in, and are creating supportive environments for both your participants and organizing teams!

In addition to hosting a Naloxone training at the end of the workshop, this session will walk participants through conversations of:

  • Why plan events? What is the role of events in Niagara? What are the types of events that bring in more members of the 2SLGBTQQIA+ communities?
  • What types of consent practices and safety models do we need to practice in our event planning, hosting, and follow up? What are the power dynamics at play in your event planning and hosting?
  • How do we address urgency culture in event planning?
  • What are the capacity considerations around events? How do your events fit within your larger annual plan? What is the goal of your event?
  • What are some tools and best practices for building supportive events – both in-person and online? What are the different ways to promote your event?

This event will be video recorded, and live transcription/ subtitles will be available. Handouts and slides will be available on the OUTniagara website after the event.

This workshop is part of the OUT IN Niagara Education Series & the Niagara Skills Network Community Toolbox Series, happening between January to March 2022. As part of OUTniagara’s larger project funded by Women & Gender Equality Canada (WAGE), this series offers a range of capacity-building workshops, panels, campaigns, & more, all in partnership with community organizations, activists, & agencies!
