For MBLGTACC 2022 we’re launching workshop tracks, and we want YOU to help us design them!
What is a workshop track? Tracks are a series of workshops centered around a common theme or topic. Tracks help shape the workshop content and aid attendees in choosing which workshops to attend based on their interests, area of focus or future plans. (Check out the full FAQ below for more details).
Below are some examples of tracks we’re thinking about:
- Doing the Work In Rural & Small Communities
- Sexual Health & Wellness
- Queer Media & Content Creation
- Activism & Protest as Tools for Liberation
- Creating Change on College Campuses
- Advisor Track
What’s a workshop track? Tracks are a series of workshops centered around a common theme or topic. Tracks help shape the workshop content and aid attendees in choosing which workshops to attend based on their interests, area of focus or future plans.
Think of tracks like seasons of a TV show or podcast, there is a basic premise tying everything together but each episode covers something different or builds off of what happened in a previous episode.
How does this impact the workshop submission process? Your input now will help inform our understanding of the broad interests of MBLGTACC attendees. We will be calling for workshop proposals later in the Spring. In the submission form, presenters will be asked if their workshop should be considered for inclusion in any of the tracks.
Does my workshop idea have to align with one of the tracks? Nope! But it’s encouraged. The tracks will be pretty broad and expansive, so there’s likely at least one track your workshop could fall under. But it’s not required that you shape your workshop to match a track.
Can I reach out about an idea for the tracks before the workshop submissions opens? Please do! If you have ideas or recommendations for content or presentations that should be included in a proposed or announced track, we’d love to hear about them!
