Playground 2020 Speaker Submissions
Thank you for visiting! This is the ONLY way to get your presentation idea to us. Please read the guidelines carefully before submitting your ideas. If you didn't already know, Playground is changing this year. The new broader vision for 2020 will include conversations on all things related to taking care of your well being; from your mind, to your body, and also your communities. It is no longer a sexuality-only conference. We’re going to be having real, honest, and healing conversations for anyone and everyone interested in the idea of simply taking care.

This year, we are open to a variety of presentation lengths so please include the approximate length of your session ideas as well. For example, if the content is right, we may consider 15-20 minute long TED style presentations along with *45 min - 1.5 hour long sessions. *Session times are not set in stone and may need to be adjusted to fit.

Playground is an intersectional, anti-oppression, inclusive conference that works hard to be a safe(r) space for all attending. Sessions that are too niche, or don't address existing privileges will not be welcomed.

On A Personal Note:
To be completely honest with you, as I know that waiting to hear back about this sort of thing can be nerve-wracking, I (Samantha) will be on holiday for a week in mid February and 10 days in March, plus I have a full time job, so I will possibly not be able to get back to people until at least mid March. PG tickets will go on sale in April and there will still be plenty of time to book flights before prices rise, for those of you coming from out of town. I will do my best to get to people sooner than that, but don't worry. You WILL hear from me. Thank you for your understanding.

Speakers will receive a small stipend for speaking and free access to the full conference weekend for themselves and a guest. The stipend amount is to be determined based on this year's budget and could be increased if we're extra successful.
