Guest speaking, conference workshops
and keynotes for Universities
Stephen Leafloor and his staff have been guest lecturers at many universities and they are often keynote speakers at conferences and festivals, including a number of international United Nations youth conferences and conferences on Hiphop. They have also spoken on behalf of Justice Canada at international conferences on crime prevention, to gang prevention specialist, and national chiefs of police conferences. Other conferences include national conferences on education, bullying, social work, mental health and Inuit and First Nation topics.
Not only are the presentations informing and inspiring, but they are also fun as the audience is often engaged in creative ways.
BluePrintForLife has also facilitated the Urban Arts Forums for the Governor General of Canada and has presented in Washington DC on using Hiphop as a community development tool. They have also trained Cirque Du Soleils cast members, consulted for new show creation, and trained its social outreach workers.
Stephen Leafloor has also contributed a chapter in an academic book on “Therapeutic outreach in Hiphop”. This will be available to universities and sold on Amazon.com .
