Interested at presenting at the fifth annual Playground conference in Toronto from November 13-15, 2015? We are currently looking for amazing people, passionate about sexuality, and relationships to share their knowledge. Whether you have an individual presentation, a panel idea, or a workshop suggestion, we are excited for your input.
Playground is an inclusive and intersectional sexuality and relationships event for all, and we welcome a diverse range of suggestions.
Our audience (attendees AND speakers) is made up of sex educators, sex workers, therapists, teachers, students, general enthusiasts, and those who simply want to connect and learn with like-minded folks about sex and sexuality. We welcome people from all genders, gender identities, races, abilities, backgrounds, HIV statuses, and sexual orientations to join us at Playground and we strongly encourage indigenous, non-binary, POC, and other under-represented and marginalized groups to apply.
Additionally Playground welcomes speakers who aren’t academics or have formal education in topics. We simply ask that you be up-to-date on current research around the topic(s) you propose, are able to engage with the audience in a respectful and confident manner, and are open to having your opinions expanded. Preference is given to people with prior speaking experience, though this is not always a necessity.
As Playground is a conference that tries to be as inclusive and intersectional as possible, please keep the audience in mind when creating your session ideas. Presentations that are too “niche” may not be considered, though we welcome them as possibilities.
Click here to fill in our speaker submission form. Deadline: May 31st.
IMPORTANT: Please note – If you apply to be a speaker but your submission is not accepted, we will guarantee you a discounted rate to attend the conference (based on the time you applied and current ticket type available.)
