Alternatives 2010 Annual Conference
“Promoting Wellness Through Social Justice”
Alternatives 2010 was a fantastic success! Over 1,100 people from across the US and from several other countries (Iceland, England, Spain and Costa Rica) participated in over 100 interactive workshops and caucuses and shared skills and ideas. Through numerous arts activities, people had the opportunity to express themselves and to enjoy the extraordinary talents our community has to offer. Most importantly, the conference provided many opportunities for people to connect with one another and explore common successes and struggles. Now that the conference is over, this page will be devoted to keeping up the momentum generated in Anaheim. Please check back frequently for updated information on the conference speakers, audio and video of presentations, as well as conference handouts.
We invite all Alternatives presenters who have not already done so to send their handouts, PowerPoint presentations, and websites with more information to email@example.com.
Please post your thoughts about your experiences at Alternatives, and how you’ve been able to follow up with the new ideas and community you experienced there. You may do this at the facebook page: Visit our Facebook page
Please return the conference evaluation if you have not done so already. The form may be completed online at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/PQXDHW8
