Get ready for the in person gathering we’ve been waiting for!

The 2022 NOFA Summer Conference will be happening in person at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA. We feel confident that we’ll be able to gather in person this August while taking appropriate public health precautions. We’ve appreciated the expansion of community and accessibility that meeting online has offered us, and will continue to offer some workshop material online. We will make preparations during our planning process to shift to a fully online conference if circumstances change.

We plan to host sessions in a range of formats this summer–including our classic educational workshops as well as cooking classes, moderated discussions, bigger roundtable sessions, and plenaries. Creativity is welcome – please let us know in the workshop proposal form if you’ve got an idea that might not fit the typical workshop format. Please submit your workshop proposals using our online workshop proposal form.

Note not all proposals will be accepted into the conference schedule. We will do our best to select and offer workshops on a range of popular topics from a range of diverse speakers.
