Meeting of Minds 2016
Thu 17 November 2016, 09:00 – 16:30 GMT
Being in awe of the people that we meet, we wanted to bring you all together to inspire one another
We've chosen the most visible iconic building in Wales to stage this first meeting of minds event talking about multiple themes that society often wants to hide. This awareness fosters inclusion and helps people gain access to empowering support. We would like to encourage healthy critical thinking towards information we are given once a diagnoses occurs and support a deeper awareness of our intuition that might just be telling us more than we realise.
Speakers include an international storyteller, a researcher, a psychologist/professional storyteller, a business owner and people with a diagnosis themselves.
There will be four themed rooms:
- Eating disorders/Self-harm
The programme consists of four opportunities per room to hear speakers, enabling participants to create their own unique and personalised programme. A plenary introduction will be given by Dr.Martine Delfos, the third owner of InAwe, who works all over the world and whose developmental perspective on autism and trauma is changing the way we think about these themes.
Speakers will be announced on the site of www.inawe.org.uk and the InAwe twitter (@InAweUK) and facebook (InAweUK) page! Please use the hashtag #IAmHumanToo if you have any questions via twitter.
9am - 4pm Main event (incl. lunch)
4 - 5pm Coffee/tea reception
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
This is an inclusive event though subject matter will be catered to people over the age of 16. Difficult subjects are going to be addressed but we do not want to exclude young people who would want to be a part of this meeting of minds.
If you would like to attend/bring a young person under the age of 16 please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we can have a chat about this and find the best solution for you.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There are multiple parking opportunities close to the Wales Millenium Centre such as Mermaid Quay and Havannah Street (between Techniquest and St.Davids Spa).
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions I may have?
What if I am an individual and would like to apply for a fully funded place?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as we have a limited number of funded places provided by the genorous belief in InAwe from The Waterloo Foundation in order to make it an inclusive event.
