I want to propose the dates of sometime between August 10th and 14th. Maybe even every day, considering that we probably don’t want it to last all day every day. I think a max of four hours a day is plenty.
I think that @Callan’s proposed topics are great and I think with five days, we could make each day themed with a topic, maybe combining the productive responses/navigating bureaucracy tracks (I see them as having some overlap) and combining the advocacy/solidarity track as well.
I think this could be really values-driven and also practical.
In terms of the infrastructure we’d need, Zoom has a webinar feature for pro accounts (which we have) but it’s an additional $40/month.
I also think we’ll want to have some kind of basic website with conference info where we share the recordings later (we can use the LFP Vimeo account to host the recordings).
For right now, it would be great to get a sense of who wants to present during this conference. I am happy to give a talk. I think we should make them 20-30 minutes each with breaks in between, just for everyone’s sanity.
Who else wants to present on one of the above topics at this conference? Who has ideas for who we should invite to present?
