Animal Advocacy Camp 2013

Liberation BC is excited to announce that Animal Advocacy Camp is back and registration is open!  You must register in order to attend.

Join your fellow activists for two days of learning about taking effective action for animals. You all have valuable skills, experiences, and ideas. By working and learning together you can build a stronger community of animal advocates and make a greater difference in the lives of animals. Animal Advocacy Camp is a practical, attendee-led event, where YOU get to set the agenda and host discussions about what YOU want to talk about.

-Share your stories, ideas, and experiences.
-Learn from the experiences of others.
-Discover the wealth of resources available
-Host powerful dialogues about issues and strategies.
-Create and strengthen relationships.
-Become a stronger and more effective advocate for animals.

The format of the event will be Open Space, meaning that the attendees (that means you) will set the agenda at the beginning of the day. Anyone can propose a session for the event.

For instance, some potential topics may be:

-Storytelling (stories about outreach, best experiences, worst experiences, horrible mistakes, etc)
-Discussions on tactics
-Discussions about topics (fur, factory farming, etc)
-How to talk to the public
-Individual actions
-How can groups work better together
-Historical precedents

There is a lot of room for discussion within the framework of this event. We all can learn a lot from each other. This is a great opportunity to tap into the collective knowledge of many other experienced people in your community. Bring along your tough problems, questions you've been struggling to answer, problems you've been trying to solve.

As the W2 Media Cafe has gone bankrupt, we have changed the location of the event to the University of British Columbia ballroom at 6138 Student Union Blvd (map). It is fully wheelchair accessible.

Advance registration is required. Register now. More details will be announced soon, including the exact hours. In the meantime, you can check out photos, notes, and videos from our past Animal Advocacy Camps here. For more information, visit animaladvocacycamp.ca.

    Hi Folks.
    I created a meetup for this event at the meetup groups at the bottom..
    Sometimes, some meetup members are much more likely to attend an event if they see a large number of people attending. So if you can, it would be great if you join those groups, and RSVP. Feel free to leave the groups after the Feb24th event, or create a subfolder for meetup related emails, so you don't get bombarded by meetup emails.
    Cheers

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
