The 2021 MidWest Mixed Conference will take place over two days and will provide spaces designated for the exploration of Mixed, Multiracial, and Transracial adoptee experiences through art, activities and conversations.

The 2021 MidWest Mixed Conference offers a sliding scale registration rate in an effort to make the event accessible to as many people as possible.

The true cost of the conference is $125.00 per person, and we offer a “Pay What You Can” option for those who need flexibility to attend the conference this summer.

Conference Schedule​​​​​​​

MWM envisions a world free from white supremacy and oppressive social constructs. We feel called to move beyond the bounds that limit our imagination or claim to define us. Together, we disrupt and expand narratives about mixedness so we can heal, connect, and push toward a future of collective liberation.

This year’s conference is virtual (online), with bonus evening programming for attendees local to Minneapolis.

What’s included in your ticket?
Your ticket purchase includes the Conference Kit, which contains the MidWest Mixed t-shirt and other swag, and access to both days of conference programming: full day of speakers, workshops, panels, and art gallery; evening social events; and a closing celebration with dialogue spaces. The 2021 MidWest Mixed Conference is also a fantastic place to network and build–and you will have access to a virtual marketplace that supports BIPOC entrepreneurs and vendors. In addition, mental health care professionals will be available during the conference for support and conversation.
