Capstone (Un) Conference 2024

Save the date:

  • 8th Biannual UnConference – June 7-9, 2024 (Sunday, June 9 – in person at the beautiful Museum of Vancouver)

How to Get Involved? 

If you are interested, please contact us at: unconference@cityu.edu. If you have any specific skills or experience that you believe would be valuable for this role, please include that in your response as well. 

This Biannual event showcases and celebrates the capstone research projects and experiences of City University students in the Master of Counselling and Master of Education in School Counselling programs in British Columbia and the wider CityU community. 

We have chosen the term “unconference” to embrace different ways of knowing, being and doing. Sessions are intended to be more participant-centred with topics, agenda, and format more open, informal, and flexible. The unconference is a great opportunity to work collaboratively with students as they explore their work.  

The 2024 Capstone (UN) Conference, as a rite of passage for Master’s Candidates here at City University, welcomes the families, friends, faculty, mentors, and broader community of counsellors associated with our graduating class to join in on this opportunity to honor and learn from the presenters. 

Virtual 

For the online day, people will be joining from across the CityU community and capstone students will be sharing their experiences and lessons learned around capstone.

In-person 

During the day we will be exploring decolonizing practices as part of honouring reconciliation. We chose the Museum of Vancouver as the venue for our event because they have approached reconciliation in a good way. Every registrant will receive a complimentary ticket to the museum as part of their welcome package as an invitation to learn more about the First Nations whose land we are gathering on. We encourage you to check out the Museum of Vancouver website for the current exhibitions.

Students sharing their work will be exploring formats and the physical space, this includes holding some of the sessions outside in the beautiful Vanier Park. We will also be holding an end of day reflective gathering outside so please come dressed for the weather. Respecting our relationship with the land and our interconnectedness with it, we will be gathering outdoors rain or shine.  

During the catered lunch we are hoping our community will come together to learn from and with each other. Every member of our community has diverse passions, knowledges, and living experiences and we would be honoured if you would share yours with us. During registration we invite you to share what you would like to bring to our community dialogue.
