The world's first such conference examining and celebrating the intersection of Asexual identities and Asia
Scheduled during Asexual Awareness Week (25-31 October) 2021, PanACEa is Asia’s first conference highlighting unique perspectives on the Asexual Spectrum in the Asian context.
Through PanACEa, we want to create a space for discussion, debate and discourse as well as community-building and cultural exchange.
The conference invites applications from presenters under two segments:
Open Call for Presentations and Papers
Under this segment, PanACEa will shine light and reflect on research and on-ground lived experiences of the aroace community in Asia. A fixed number of slots are assigned for presentations during the Conference. We invite people from all backgrounds and identities to apply. Students, researchers, academicians, and also activists, members of the queer community and social organisations as well as collectives from the asexual and aromantic spectrums - there is room for everyone.
Open Call for Creative Events
The creative and communal experience is as important to understanding the intersections of Asexuality and Asian identity as research and discourse. Do you have a song you want to share or a journaling exercise you want to run with people? Maybe manga art of dragons with cake, or a quiet piece of fan fiction or even a cool magic trick you want to showcase - in this segment we invite entries that demonstrate the kaleidoscope of creative expression from the asexual community and beyond in Asia.
