July 13th - 17th, 2022
VASTA Annual Conference
VASTA practitioners have unlocked a wealth of invaluable approaches to teaching and communicating within our individual practices. We have learned how to connect and collaborate in new ways. The varying pathways through which we can communicate beyond our established sensibilities, expand the colours in the palette of life and in our practice and pedagogy. Through the convergence of our multicultural and interdisciplinary voices, bodies, communities, and narratives, we are launching ourselves into a brave new arena, “ripe” with inspiration and collective wisdom. Converging Pathways is the time to collect our knowledge and study new intersections between voice, speech, culture, storytelling, technology, and artistry.
In 2022, VASTA will have its first in person conference in two years. In the spirit of inclusion and accessibility, we will have hybrid on-line events and workshops available.
VASTA is partnering with local childcare facilities and camps, and is committed to providing heavily discounted or complimentary childcare to all attendees in need of childcare at the Converging Pathways conference. One of the partnering organizations is: www.ssusuperkidscamp.com
Additionally, we have been able to negotiate a block of rooms with double occupancy. For those bringing their families or partners, you can now request a double occupancy room in the notes section of your registration form.
