Serious Thoughts

ConFound

This weekend I will be wearing my Continuum Foundation hat as I talk to a group of people who are running a major event in Melbourne this year. It's not actually a science fiction convention as such, but they are a fannish community of their own, and they came to us wanting advice.

The Continuum Foundation is all about encouraging fandom(s) and helping where we can. Our primary goals are to help new people find fandom, and training up the next generation of con-runners through the Continuum Conventions.

Continuum 5 is coming, by the way - 2009 - so start saving now!

One of the things I say is that if ConFound isn't doing what it can to help out, then what's the point? Collapse )
