We look forward to gathering when a vaccine makes it safe to do so.  Target dates for the Toronto conference are now 30 September to 2 October 2021, coinciding with the rescheduled exhibition of Uninvited at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.  Unfortunately, the Quebec City venues for both the exhibition and the conference have been cancelled due to COVID-19.
