About presenting at Between the Veils Conference 2022: The Gathering Paths

Between The Veils is excited to announce that we are now looking for presenters for our annual in-person conference, The Gathering Paths. The conference will be held Presidents Day weekend (Friday Feb 18th- Monday Feb 21st) at the DoubleTree by Hilton in San Jose, California. If you are interested in presenting please complete and submit this form. 

We ask that anyone wanting to apply, please read our Community Agreements in full and additionally, agree that your presentation meets the following criteria:

1.Inclusivity - We respect and welcome all people. We do not tolerate discriminatory behavior.

2. Anti-harassment - We do not tolerate any verbal, physical, or sexual intimidation and/or coercion.

3. Consent - Make sure you receive an enthusiastic “yes” from others before engaging in touch, sexual expression, engagement, and recording/sharing personal information including images. Be aware of power disparities that may be present.                                                                                                
4. Cultural appropriation - We recognize that cultural appropriation is a harmful behavior that includes using, often without permission, cultural traditions and practices which do not belong to one’s own ancestral heritage. This may include using these practices for monetary or personal gain. We do not tolerate such behavior. 

5. Accountability - Own your impact when you have caused harm. This can be healing to all involved. Let’s normalize it!

If your presentation is selected, BTV agrees to promote the conference and this specific presentation on social media, websites, email blasts, Patreon updates, and on our website.
