Looking for Workshop Proposals! ~ La Recherche de Suggestions d’Ateliers

October 3rd, 2010

~~ Note: Deadline extended to end of Sunday, October 17th. ~~

la version française suit…

ORGANIZING FOR JUSTICE  ((( O4F )))  is looking for workshop proposals!

We are holding our 4th conference/gathering this November (tentatively set for a keynote/feature presentation/workshop Thurs Nov 11 or Fri Nov 12 and full-day of workshops on Sat Nov 13). Note: You can find information on our past gatherings, and more about us, at http://www.organizingforjustice.ca

The O4J gathering is about the themes of social, economic, and environmental justice and healthy communities. A ‘workshop’ session can be a workshop, a presentation, a panel discussion, or an open discussion, or any other format you propose.

The focus of sessions should be on the two O4J gathering purposes:
1) To further/develop an understanding/analysis of strategy/tactics and vision in our efforts for change
2) To assist people in learning skills and tools that can be used in these efforts

The O4J gathering is not focused on having sessions that merely educate people on a certain issue, although some discussion of the issue may be relevant when discussing the types of approaches people (may) take or have taken on that issue.

We are soliciting proposals for sessions to be held on the full-day part of our schedule (Sat Nov 13, unconfirmed). These can be offered in English, French or bilingual.

All session that can be accommodated by our allotted space and time will be accepted. Any needed selection will be made on the basis of matching the above noted O4J gathering purposes and to avoid duplication. Suggestions for combining proposals may be made.

If you are interested in offering to lead/organize or take part in a session, please contact us with the following information (email org4justice@gmail.com or call 613-656-5498, with proposals and/or questions)

* Title of session:
* Format of session:
* Short description:
* Purpose of session / intended outcomes:
* Facilitator/presenter/panellist(s):
* Qualifications/background of facilitator/presenter/panellist(s):
* Any proposed expenses (transportation, supplies, etc):

Please submit proposals as soon as possible, and no later than (new)  Sun Oct 17

Thank you – on behalf of the planning committee for O4J

ORGANISONS-NOUS POUR LA JUSTICE est à la recherche de suggestions d’ateliers!

Nous comptons tenir notre quatrième conférence au mois de novembre (nous espérons avoir un atelier/présentation jeudi le 11 ou vendredi le 12 novembre, ainsi qu’une journée longue d’ateliers samedi le 13 novembre). Notez: Vous pouvez vous informer au sujet de notre organisation, ainsi que nos conférences précédentes à http://organizingforjustice.ca

Notre conférence se concentra autours des thèmes de justice sociale, environnementale, et économique, ainsi que la création d’une communauté saine et soutenable. Un ‘atelier’ peu être un atelier, une présentation, une discussion, ou n’importe quel autre format que vous proposez.

Un atelier devrais poursuivre un des buts suivant d’organisons-nous pour la justice:
1) De développer nos connaissances/analyser nos stratégies, nos tactiques et notre vision par rapport à notre lutte pour le changement.
2) D’assister les gens à augmenter leurs connaissances et à apprendre de nouveaux outils qui nous aiderons dans nos efforts.

Nous n’avons pas comme but principal d’avoir des ateliers qui ont uniquement comme but d’éduquer les gens sur un sujet en particulier, mais nous reconnaissons qu’un peu de discussion sur le sujet est essentiel pour pouvoir discuter les divers façons que nous pouvons (ainsi que d’autres gens avant nous on pu) approcher le sujet.

Nous recherchons des suggestions pour la journée longue qui prendra place samedi le 13 novembre (date non-confirmée). L’atelier peu se tenir en anglais, en français, ou peu être bilingue.

Tous ateliers pour lesquels nous avons assez d’espace et de temps seront acceptés. Si une sélection deviens nécessaire, nous baserons celle-ci en considérant si les buts d’organisons-nous pour la justice notez ci-haut sont suivis ou pour éviter d’avoir plus d’un atelier sur le même sujet.

Si vous êtes intéresser a donner/organiser ou participer a un atelier, svp contacter-nous et laissez-nous savoir l’information suivante (envoyez un courriel org4justice@gmail.com ou appelez nous 613-656-5498)

*Titre de l’atelier
*Format de l’atelier
*Courte description
*Point de l’atelier/orateur/…
*Qualifications/expérience de la personne nommée
*Couts (transportation, matériaux, etc.)

SVP nous laisser savoir vos suggestions aussitôt que possible ainsi que pas plus tard que (nouveau) dimanche le 17 octobre.

Merci de la part du comité de planification d’organisons-nous pour la justice
