Announcing Conference Evening Programme: Free, Open Short-Form Presentations

Written by  Rob Porter

Hamilton Centre for Teaching Peace (HCTP) is pleased to announce its plans for the evening programme of the Conscious Communities Conference in November 2010 in Hamilton, Ontario Canada.

On the evenings of November 11, 12, and 13th HCTP will be hosting free, public short-form presentations from champions of peace, education, social justice, and community development. Each speaker will be given 15 minutes to share inspiring ideas and stories with the audience.

Talks will be held at the downtown Sky Dragon Community Co-Operative, in addition to other venues yet to be announced.

Call for nominations

We are seeking nominations from the public for speakers. Who do you know that deserves 15 minutes of the undivided attention of a public audience? Do you know somoene who's quietly (or not-so quietly) enabled positive social change in a community?

Nominees should be from the Hamilton/Halton/Niagara region, aware of the nomination and willing to present on one of the evenings. All ages are encouraged -- we especially love hearing from youth and elders alike!

To nominate, please email conference (at) with the subject line "Speaker nominee" and the presenters name, email or phone number, and around 250 to 350 words about why they should be featured.
