The symposium was held at VIVO Media Arts Centre, operating on the stolen and Unceded Territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Participants included Amber Berson, Jade Courchesne, Ann Marie Fleming, Yasmin Jiwani, Karen Knights, Karin Lee, Midi Onodera, Gabriela Aceves Sepúlveda, Viola Thomas, Loretta Todd, Ana Valine. Keynote by Zainub Verjee.
