AradaniCon - A FREE Online Convention Starts TODAY!

In a few hours from when I am typing this, the FREE online convention, AradaniCon, will begin. Events run through midnight tonight (central time) and will start again tomorrow at noon and will continue till...? with the late-night digital dance party. All of the details are below! I will be taking part in an artist hangout tonight and an artist panel discussion tomorrow. Hope to see you there!

Discord (the Convention Lobby for us)

AradaniCon is a FREE online convention that started in 2020. We all know why we have to have it online, but why do it?

• Social interaction. Conventions are being canceled, and we need a way to connect with each other.

• Helping artists. Artists and makers are having a rough time during this time, and we all need to band together and help out!

• Helping fandom. Patrons of conventions and festivals are having a rough time missing out on their social interactions at these events. This is a way for us to all come together.
Where do we start?

The main “Lobby” for the convention will be the Aradani Discord channel. We will be posting the schedule there, as well as just having a general chat. We can also subdivide if the lobby gets too crowded.

What will be at AradaniCon?

• Panels: We will have a full schedule of panels, hosted by the best in the industry. These will last from 1 to 2 hours, with extended discussions in Discord. Panels will be streaming on Youtube and/or Twitch.
Dealer’s Hall: Our panelists will be selling their wares online, and some with discounts!
Gaming: We hope to have a full schedule of gaming online, but at minimum, Mike will host a SagaBorn game or two that weekend!
Costume Masquerade: We will have a panel or webpage showcasing costumes, with awards given!
Late Night Digital Dance Party: That’s right, we can still enjoy music and dancing like no one's watching.
I hope to see you there!

That's all for another exciting week on the blog, see you back here on Monday! Until then...
