CATA-ACAT 2020 Virtual Conference
CATA-ACAT 2020 Virtual Conference
Sustaining and Expanding Creative Practices in Unprecedented Times
Multiple dates between November 06, 2020 and November 22, 2020
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

Conference Schedule

In order to offer a conference program that is flexible and accessible in consideration of time zones, work/life schedules, and effects of extended screen time, while still creating space for connections, experientials and sharing, we're scheduling the conference sessions over three weekends, with shorter periods of synchronized programming each day and presentations that can be accessed online anytime. Attendees can choose any number of sessions to participate in.


Live sessions are scheduled on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of November.


Live Sessions

Registration is still open! You can register for the conference or add additional sessions by clicking the Register button in the menu to the left. There are a total of 18 live sessions hosted throughout November. Registration for each live session costs $20. For every six live sessions you register for, you will receive a 5% discount (ie. 5% off for 6-11 sessions; 10% off for 12-17 sessions; 15% off for all 18 sessions). Live presentations will be held over Zoom.


CATA-ACAT members receive an additional 10% off of their conference total at checkout.


Pre-recorded Sessions

There are also 9 pre-recorded sessions available for attendees. Registering for any number of live sessions will also give you access to a series of pre-recorded presentations available throughout the duration of the conference.


Breaks

Every conference day includes a 30-minute break period. A Zoom meeting link will be available for anyone wishing to visit, connect, or network during these times.


AGM

The CATA-ACAT Annual General Meeting will be held from 2:45 pm to 4:00 pm EST on Saturday, November 14. For those wishing to attend the AGM but not the rest of the conference, please click here or select AGM Only when beginning conference registration.


Attending the Conference

Clicking the banner at the top of this screen to enter the Virtual Event Organizer (VEO). From here, you will be able to view your own Itinerary, a list of all Live Sessions, and a list of Pre-recorded Webinars. Please note that even though the pre-recorded webinars appear to be scheduled on the first day, they will be available throughout the duration of the conference.


Protip: Make sure that your timezone is properly set in the upper left corner of the screen!


By clicking on any of the sessions in these lists, you can view more information about the session, including a session description, presenter bios, supporting documents, and, if you have registered for the session, a button that you can use to join the session.


For live sessions, the Join Session button will only become active 5 minutes before the session is scheduled to begin. Once the button is active, clicking it will allow you to join the Zoom meeting in which the session is taking place. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom and need help with the program, you can find support on the Zoom website.


For pre-recorded webinars, the View Webinar button will take you to the video of the webinar, which you can watch at any time throughout the conference.


Providing Session Feedback

Once a session you have attended is complete, you will find an opportunity to provide feedback for the presenters and conference committee by returning to the session page on the conference website. This feedback will be in the form of a series of ratings. You will have another opportunity to provide more detailed feedback at the end of the conference when we send out our post-conference survey.


Session Recordings

We have had several inquiries as to whether recordings of these sessions will be made available. Unfortunately, recordings of live sessions will not be available this year. However, we have noted the request and will be looking into providing this feature in any future virtual conferences.


Collective Art Gallery 

We're inviting artwork submissions throughout the conference for a collective art gallery that will culminate in a slideshow at the closing of the conference, as well as a gallery page on our website! To participate please see this video and read the video description for submission details.
