2021 Theme: Our 2021 theme has not yet been decided. Let us know what you’d like our theme to be by filling out the form below
We invite proposals that amplify and develop ideas inspired by the theme for this year’s Salt Lake Symposium. Submissions will be determined at Sunstone’s discretion to fill either a 60-minute or 90-minute time slot.
Submissions will be accepted according the following criteria:
- RELEVANCE TO THEME AND MORMONISM? Grief and Gratitude
- IS IT IN LINE WITH OUR MISSION? Does the content reflect the values of our Mission Statement? Open Forum. Expresses rich spiritual, intellectual, social, and artistic qualities of Mormon history and contemporary life. Humanitarian Service. Honest inquiry. Responsible and respectful interchange.
- DOES IT BRING VALUE TO OUR SYMPOSIUM? Is it thoughtful/substantive?
ABOUT SUBMITTING PROPOSALS:
In order to receive first-round consideration, proposals should be received on or before 1 March 2021.
Incomplete or late proposals will be considered on a time/space-available basis. Sessions will be accepted according to standards of excellence in scholarship, thought, and expression.
If you have any questions please email our Events Manager Grace Pool at Grace@Sunstone.org

Submitting Proposals for Regional Conferences and Other Events
If you would like to submit a proposal for one of our events (not the Salt Lake Summer Symposium), please email Grace Pool at Grace@Sunstone.org
Regional events function in a different way than the Salt Lake Summer Symposium. They are smaller, more casual gatherings around the world and much of the program content is curated. If you would like to propose an idea, please do so by email.
EMAILS MUST INCLUDE:
Subject line of email: Proposal for [title and date of] Conference
Body of email: Must contain abstract of presentation, proposed presentation time, bio and contact info for all presenters.
