The 2016 THESA conference will be held once again in beautiful Richmond, BC, on Oct 21st, this time at Richmond High School. We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Executive Chef Ned Bell. (Click on Keynote to see more about Chef Ned!)
The theme of this year's conference is “Home Economics: The PULSE of everyday living.” This is an
extension of last year's theme, The Heart of Education, and also plays on the UN's declaration that 2016 is the International Year of Pulses. Chef Ned is enthusiastic about his theme and, after his keynote address, he will present a demonstration of several recipes for pulses.
The focus on a sustainable source of nourishment lends itself well to the philosophy of home economics, and spills over into the ethical and socially just view of everyday living that we embody in Textiles, Foods and Family Studies.
