The Canadian National Pagan Conference (CNPC), Gaia Gathering, is held every year over the long Victoria Day weekend in May. Each year, the event is hosted by a different city, which is determined through a bid and vote process. Gaia Gathering is a place where people from across Canada and from across the spectrum of this country’s Pagan religions an come together to talk about who we are, where we’ve come from, and where we might be going as a religious community in Canada.

Past host cities include Edmonton, Halifax, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Vancouver. The conference features three days of discussion and workshops about Canadian contemporary Paganisms – our Asatru, our Druidry, our Wicca and so on — and brings together Canadian elders, community leaders, and interested Pagans or Pagan-curious for networking, discussion, and community. Legally, we are incorporated federally as a non-profit organization and operate with a national Board of Directors as well as a local host committee.

Registration is now open for Gaia Gathering 2011 conference which will be held in the beautiful, bilingual and metropolitan Montreal from May 20th to 23rd, 2011. Our conference venue is Concordia University and the theme is “Language to Liturgy.”

Putting posters up for the Bardic and the Ball

10 October 2010

We’ve had bilingual posters made for the following events and we’re asking our supporters to put these posters up in places where they will be seen:

  • Montreal Witches Masquerade Ball (thanks be to Alex for designing the poster)
  • Gaia Bardic Fundraiser (thanks be to Crystal for designing the poster and flyers)

The posters have been brought to the two following places for you to pick up:

  • Charme & Sortilege (4933 Rue de Grand-Pré, Montréal)
  • Le Melange Magique (1928 Ste. Catherine Street West)

When putting these posters up, please do NOT put them on illegal places like mailboxes, telephone poles, parking meters, bus shelters, etc. If our posters are found in these places, we could be fined up to $1500.  For the Witches Ball: if Sala Rossa finds out that the posters have been put in illegal places, we could lose our rights to use their space for this event. So please BE CAREFUL when putting the posters up.

Keep in mind that these events are on October 23rd (the Gaia Bardic) and  on October 29th (the Witches Ball), which is not far away. The sooner we get these posters up, the better. Good places to put posters up include:

  • Universities
  • CEGEPS
  • Community centres
  • Cafes
  • Grocery stores
  • Pharmacies

Thanks for your support!
