This innovative Conference, in service to the national Pagan community, will take place entirely online, allowing for participants from every region of the US to attend. PACO will provide valuable, insightful information from experienced and innovative Pagan activists and community voices. Our interactive presentations and discussion panels, regarding infrastructures that serve Pagan organizational and individual activism, feature some of the most experienced and accomplished leaders in their respective areas. Check back frequently, as guests are still joining.

The goal of the Conference is to equip Pagan activists from all over the country with the tools necessary to advance the goals and aims of their own activist efforts, and to build bridges between Pagan activists for mutual support.

Pantheon Foundation Announces Pagan Activism Conference Online 2014 — 16 Comments

  1. Will the event be recorded for those who cannot attend one or both days? Are they streamed as an audio-only lecture or with full audio/visual support? I’m likely to be on the train during one or more of these and I’m trying to see if there’s a way to “attend” regardless.

  2. Glad you asked! Yes, these sessions will be recorded and made available after the conference. Individuals who purchase a conference ticket or panel ticket will have access to watch these videos free of charge.

    You have choices regarding full A/V or audio-only attendance. If you are stationary and have strong signal, you will be able to watch & participate using full A/V from a desktop, laptop, or smartphone. If you will be traveling or only have access to a cell phone or land line, there is a dial-in option that is audio-only.

    Let us know if we can help in any other ways!

  3. I facilitate a local CUUPs group in Houston. The ticket cost isn’t doable individually but could we go in together and share the content. I was thinking I could run the feed to the tv at the Church or some such. Is it okay to do that for the cost of one ticket?

    • Hi Russell,

      Thanks for asking! You are welcome to set it up so that your group may all participate for the cost of one ticket. In fact, we hope that others will feel free to do that same thing. This is a great way to make the event available to more folks.

      We also have some need-based scholarships available. Folks who want to apply can send an email to and we will get back to them ASAP.


  4. Looks wonderful! Query re: the videos after the conference, if I purchase a $20 ticket for a single panel, would I be allowed to view all the conference videos afterward, or just the video of the panel for which I bought the ticket?

    • Thanks for asking! All videos will be available to view after the event by anyone who has purchased any type of ticket. (Just give us a little time to get them in place.)

      Let us know if we can help in any other ways!
