You might be asking yourself what a typical day at STAMMAFest Global will be like? What are you getting for your money?
Well, here goes…
On each of the four main conference days, we’ll kick off at 9.30am with a plenary session. That’s when we all come together in the main room, fascinating speakers and panels discuss the topic of the day. On Thursday hear about Our Stammering Tribe, Friday explores Beauty in Stammering, with Saturday focusing on We Work, and Sunday getting everyone excited about Changing How The World Sees Stammering.
For the rest of each day, there’s a programme of workshops and sessions, with a choice of at least four different sessions per hour. You can pick and choose the sessions that are most interesting or relevant to you and go to those. The line-up of speakers and topics is really exciting!
Just to give you a flavour, sessions include…
Films and podcasts, as well as art, photography, video, drumming, theatre, singing, and performance art workshops;
Sharing your voice with a crowd of people who are all on your side at our daily open mic sessions;
Tech, virtual reality and stammering;
Discussions about stigma, microaggressions, stammering pride and prejudice and self-compassion;
Find your tribe with sessions for women who stammer, young adults who stammer, older people who stammer, family members, and those coming out twice;
Job applications and interviewing;
Spirituality and stammering;
School and stammering;
Running alongside the conference day on Saturday, there will also be a Family Day event - see the Family Day page blog for more information.
Coffee breaks and lunch
Included in your conference ticket, there’s a break after each morning’s plenary session, with tea and coffee (as well as maybe a biscuit or two) served.
A hot buffet lunch is also provided each day as part of your ticket price. When you book your conference ticket, you’ll receive an email asking you to let us know your dietary requirements.
There are social events on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Your conference ticket for the day includes any social events scheduled for that day.
On Wednesday evening there’s a Welcome Reception which will be held in the spectacular crypt of the Metropolitan Cathedral (just over the road from the conference venue).
Friday offers a sightseeing tour of Liverpool during the afternoon, as well as a pub-style quiz with Fish & Chips in the evening.
On Saturday, it’s the main social event of STAMMAFest Global: an evening full of live music, street performers and a delicious choice of food from around the world!
