Workshops

THE DEADLINE FOR WORKSHOP SUBMISSIONS HAS BEEN EXTENDED ONE WEEK!

Please submit your Workshops no later than June 24th.

The 2021 Convention theme this year is “Rising to the Moment.” We are asking members to submit workshop applications focused on one or more of the following themes:

  • Building a culture of peace

  • Anti-militarism and current conflicts

  • Environmental Impacts of War and Militarism

  • Organizing responses to the current health and economic crises

  • Mobilizing members to get active and engaged

We will have the capacity to host nine workshops during this year’s convention and priority will be given to submitters who have a connection with or are organizing via Veterans For Peace already. Complete applications will also be prioritized and incomplete applications will be returned for further work. 

The application deadline for workshops to be considered is June 24th, 2021. This deadline will be firmly adhered to as hosting workshops online requires a tremendous amount of preparation. 

Please also consider the following requirements when submitting:

  • Stable and fast internet

  • Web camera and up to date microphone

  • Ability to navigate and learn webinar technology

  • Engaging content that will keep online viewers interested

For those members whose workshops are not selected for presentation during the convention, there will be opportunities for VFP to host the workshops online separately throughout the year.

We have reduced registration fees based on need and if you would like to apply for a scholarship please see this link.
