Preliminary Schedule

The preliminary schedule is up. You can access it here, or from the right menu bar of this blog.

We've tried to group similar topics together into 'streams' and tried to work the schedule so all topics in the same stream are in different time slots. This worked well, except for the diversity stream. Here's what we've got:

Taking Care of Each Other:
Recognizing and Preventing Burnout
Mental Illness and Pagan Communities
Our Aging Pagans
Pagan Parenting
Finding a Mentor or Teacher

Paganism and Indigenous North American Traditions
Pagans, Polyamory and Kink
Paganism and Activism
Uniformed Pagans
Ethnicity and Paganism
Our Ethical Codes Across Traditions
Coming Out to Family and Friends

Organizing and Leadership:
Organizing Festivals
Pagan Pride Days: Importance and Logistics
Media Skills
Setting Up Churches and Non-Profits
(Recognizing and Preventing Burnout - also in Taking Care of Each Other)

We also have the music stream, scholarship/academic stream, two guest speakers and a history panel.

There's a lot of content packed in there right now and there's not much breathing room. We're considering thinning out some of the options, but before we do so, we'd like to hear from you about the schedule itself and which sessions you think you're most likely to attend, or not attend. Maybe after abit of discussion we'll find that there are a few obvious cuts, or perhaps we'll find that we have a good mix and folks are okay having a full schedule. You can join the discussion on our YahooGroup, or leave a comment here.

We are still looking for moderators and panelists, especially for those topics where you don't see a name beside the title. Interested? Let us know. Know someone you think would be a great fit for a panel, let us both know!!!
