Conferences are often closed and restricted to those who can pay to participate. Financial, logistical, social or health barriers can prevent equitable access to conference experiences. Virtually Connecting (http://virtuallyconnecting.org/about/) is a global volunteer organization that is opening the doors to engage in hallway conversations at conferences with people, topics and issues that matter. With a focus on OPEN, this session will be an exploratory experience to share the Virtually Connecting ethos and practice with a focus on participatory practice, inclusion for people of diverse backgrounds, choice and agency in conversations, and recognizing that spontaneity is imperfect in open dialogic spaces.
