2-Pay by cheque/check made out to BOLD and mail in with your registration form to POB 21510, 1424 Commercial Drive, Vancouver BC V5L 5G2 Canada

Our Conference fees are on a sliding scale to make this event as accessible to as many women as possible and to recognize the differences in our incomes, a sound feminist principle. Please pay what you can afford on the sliding scale. The bottom end of the scale does not cover the actual costs per person but with the help of those who can pay mid to high end, plus whatever fundraising we do, BOLDFest will always be open to women of various means, including those who ask for, and receive, subsidies and full scholarships.

Please note that on the bottom of the registration form is a line to request a subsidy. Please let us know what you can pay toward the $200 bottom end of the sliding scale. We will do what we can to cover the rest of your costs.
