As you may be aware, the mission statement of Genghiscon is to make the most accessible science fiction, fantasy and gaming convention for fans from all walks of life.
We have put a lot of effort into this over the years, with the most affordable membership price of any Perth based weekend long convention (that we are aware of), as well as a range of safe spaces, diversity and accessibility initiatives. In continuation of this fine tradition, we are very pleased to announce our newest initiative: “Fans funding fans”. You can check it out on Patreon here.
This is not a campaign to fund Genghiscon, the convention has always run from the yearly fundraising programme and memberships. This campaign is designed to facilitate memberships, transport or accommodation for fans who would not otherwise be able to attend.
“Fans funding fans” was inspired by the various convention fan funds (there is a pretty great index here, ozfanfunds.com/) and “Hackers helping hackers” (hackershelpinghackers.com, another grass roots convention initiative), to keep science fiction, fantasy and gaming events accessible to all fans.
