2014 Positive Gathering scholarship and proposals updated deadlines

Positive Gathering is a three-day conference developed for and by HIV-positive British Columbians. Our peer-delivered interactive workshops allow HIV-positive people to learn from each other in a safe, open and supportive environment. Our breakaway sessions and gala dinner provide great opportunities for networking, socializing and having fun. Registration is only $10 and includes all meals and nutrition breaks throughout the weekend.

Positive Gathering will be held March 28-30, 2014 at the Coast Plaza Hotel (1763 Comox Street, Vancouver). Space is still available so we’ve extended the following deadlines:


Travel Scholarship applications—NEW DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 14, 2014

A limited number of travel scholarships are available for HIV-positive BC residents living outside Greater Vancouver. Depending on your needs, scholarships may provide for travel costs (bus, ferry, air) and/or accommodation at the hotel during the conference. Download a Scholarship/Registration form now.


Workshop proposals—NEW DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 14, 2014

We invite all HIV-positive British Columbians to share their expertise by presenting a Positive Gathering workshop!
