PolyCon - Canada   

November 22-23, 2020

Honouring Intersectionality and Diversity in our Communities.

 24 hr live stream event from sundown Nov 22 to sundown Nov 23, 2020 (PST).
Live streamed hosting, interactive chat and video segments. Broadcast will be available on YouTube after the event.

WANTED - Video clips 5 to 15 min long. Exploring diversity in the polyamory communities across Canada (and globally) and where polyamory intersects with other aspects of individual and community experiences.
Presentations, workshop in a nutshell, music performances, author readings...etc. These are meant to be fodder for discussion, not the whole workshop experience and not interactive in and of themselves. These will be broadcast within a live stream event. Comments and discussion will occur about each piece directly after in the live stream and the chat sections. We reserve the right to edit to fit broadcast time and use brief segments and stills in our event promotions. We have to comply with copyright legislation and music clips will require single use performance waivers.
info@polycon-canada.ca Proposals should submitted urgently. Please include summary of topic and length of video. A dropbox logon will be given to you if accepted.

WANTED - Live Streamer hosts. We are looking for live streamers from across Canada (and globally) to collab on a 24 hour broadcast. We will upload recorded segments and have live discussion as well as chat capability. Streamer hosts need to be able to use Twitch, Youtube, Facebook Live or Skype and commit to being present live for a specific scheduled period of time. Part of the streamer's hosting tasks will be to read and interact with the chat comments on your own feed. This will boost your viewership and ours. Polyamory-friendly mindset is required. info@polycon-canada.ca and we'll correspond about logistics.

Live Stream and Virtual cons

A Live stream event is live and in real time with a 7 - 10 second delay.  A co-hosted live stream allows for rebroadcasting by other live streamers around the world.   Various live streaming platforms can host including a broadcast link in a website.

A Virtual event can be recorded and viewable at a later date on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. 

PolyCon - Canada 2020 will be a 24 hr live streamed event  that will include recorded video pieces.  The entire live stream including the video will be  recorded so that it can be viewed later.  There is a 24 hr delay to that upload usually.
