Under its various segments, PanACEa creates space for academic discourse and community events alike.
Through presentations, panels, and workshops, 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. 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.
The creative and communal experience is equally important to us! 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 written from the depth of your passion or even a cool magic trick you want to showcase - we invite entries that demonstrate the kaleidoscope of creative expression from the asexual community and beyond.
WHO CAN APPLY:
People of all sexual identities and from across nationalities. While the conference focuses on Asexuality in Asia, we have many overlaps and intersections with facets that go beyond these two identities. If you're wondering whether or not you qualify to apply, in most cases the answer is you do., very much, qualify.

Fill the form below by the deadline: September 15th, 2022. Selections are conducted on a rolling basis so apply soon!
Our panel will review the applications and those selected will be informed on a rolling basis.
Final presentations / detailed proposals / actual submissions will then need to be sent in.
There is Room for Everyone
As people who live at the intersection of several identities, we know acutely what it means to be excluded. To be held at arm’s length by gatekeepers and gaslit out of our own experiences. And thus it is our firm resolve to make PanACEa: Asia Asexuality Conference as diverse, inclusive and vibrant an event as we can. Our conference is open to everyone from Asia and Asian diaspora irrespective of language, culture, religion, ethnicity, race, age, gender, sexuality, SOGIESC, physical and mental health and ability. We are working to make our words suit our actions and putting together systems and resources to empower our participants and foster a community of thinkers and doers who can help us forge a welcoming and authentic experience at the conference.
If you would like to help us build a more equitable world, where all voices find listening hearts and minds, do fill out this form and help us learn. Together we all grow better.
