So there's been a lot of negative stuff on TRHOnline
and Nerd & Tie
about rumblings in the convention scene. From the Awesome Con stuff (Part 1
, Part 2
) to the DashCon fiasco (dear lord that mess...
), things have probably sounded pretty bleak.
So let's talk about something else instead. Let's talk about a great little convention trying to expand.
Let's talk about Nezumi Con.
Nezumi Con started as a little student run con at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and I've been going there for the last two years. It may be small, but I've always enjoyed myself.
Well, they're trying to grow, and they need money to do that. So Nezumi Con has launched an Indiegogo campaign
Their goal is fairly reasonable at $4500, and the campaign will continue until September 5th. With this money they plan on running their standard January one day event - but long term they want to expand to a multiday event.
Look, with all the talk about corporate cons and amateurs making messes of thing, Nezumi Con is an independent, well run convention and they need your support.
So consider donating.
And being awesome.
Not enough inspiration? If you help support Nezumi Con 2015, I can pay for a table at Nezumi Con 2015. And then you can go to Nezumi Con 2015. And then you can find a table that looks like this there and buy things from me:
WOULDN'T THAT MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER? I think it would.
