Join us for Drama Con – an exploration of all kinds of meanings of drama. We’ll talk about how to deal with drama in our lives, learn about ourselves and push past our comfort zone in improv games, and explore the theme of truth, healing and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada. Most of the weekend will be youth space at UCS, but we’ll join in multigenerational community with the rest of the gathering on Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as for the Sunday morning worship.

Dear youth: This fall gathering has been designed with YOU in mind! Our workshop streams on Saturday include music and song leading with Matt Meyer and UU-style leadership skills with Asha Philar. In the leadership stream, you’ll learn about group facilitation, and how to plan meetings that are meaningful, efficient and give us spiritual sustenance. Carry these skills with you so you can bring more inclusive group process into the world! The afternoon at the gathering will include a fishbowl activity where we can share our learning from the day and learn more about each others’ beliefs, and a closing youth-style worship.
We’ll also have an evening activity for youth and advisors in Kitchener after the day’s programs (details TBA!). Please stay over in town on Saturday night to join us for Sunday morning worship, which will be an amazing, interactive, musical experience led by Matt Meyer.

$55 per youth/advisor – weekend food and accommodations included

Here’s a taste of the delicious programming at this year’s SoUUl Food themed con! At this year’s Unitarian Universalist Youth BC Regional Fall Con, we will be exploring how food is intertwined with our identity, spirituality, and social justice. Food could tell a thousand stories with every bite, so we will be taking the time to listen deeply to the tales of the earth that grew, the arms that gathered, the hands that cooked, and the grumbles of our own cravings. Inside every act of cooking lies a revolution — and a story about who we are. Let’s forge a deeper understanding of what nourishes us in hopes that it will nourish our souls too.
