The 8th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD is coming up from April 18th to 21st in Vancouver, BC. There are some great opportunities for people to contribute to the conference this year. Here are two ways you can take part:
1) “This Is Me” is a poster format presentation that will showcase the work of teens and adults who have FASD. The conference invites individuals with FASD to share photos, poetry, artwork, written personal stories, crafts, opinion pieces (what you think about something that is important to you or to others), ideas for change, and any other topic or idea that can be displayed on a poster. These posters will be exhibited at the conference and everyone attending will be able to see them.
2) FASD Marketplace: This year, the conference is also looking to provide a marketplace area for teens and adults who wish to sell art and craft products they have made. Sellers are responsible for their own items. If you wish to sell your work, please contact Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 604.822.7524 ahead of time so that a space can be arranged for you.
