Some of Our Anime Program Highlights

The Satoshi Kon Legacy series: Saturday is devoted to the anime director Satoshi Kon, who passed away in the summer of 2010. He was a true artistic visionary in his direction of so many outstanding anime films. We also will have a special guest lecturer, Prof. Susan Napier from Tufts, she will discuss Satoshi Kon on Sunday.

Fast Track Lego Tournament Prize Donations

Hi everybody,

We are really excited about the Fast Track programming this year, which is going to have a ton of really awesome sessions. One of the items that we are most looking forward to is a Lego Tournament, where the kids will be encouraged to build something with Legos on the theme of Mad Science. Given all of the hard work the kids will be putting into this, we would really love to be able to award prizes after the judging at least to the top winners, and here is where we could use your help.

we've got dances

Even the eclectic scientists need to get their dance on.

Staff Den/Green Room Volunteers

Hi Arisians.

As the con gets closer, Staff den and Green Room would like to offer some of you an opportunity to get in volunteer hours *before the con starts*. We need people who have experience in food service, ans understand food safety to help us prepare meals for guests and staff. If you've worked in a kitchen, as a caterer, or have a food safety certification, we'd like your help cooking.


We have our film schedule up now.
