Intro post!

 Nine Worlds GeekFest is a multi-genre, multi-stream all-geeking all-dancing residential convention based in London, and this is our Dreamwidth community!

Nine Worlds is 
about gaming, film, cosplay, fandom, literature, science, geek culture, meeting people and having a really big party. The first Nine Worlds is taking place this summer, from August 9-11, and will feature over 20 programme tracks covering everything from space science to steampunk to costuming to knitting, as well as specific fandoms like Doctor Who, Game of Thrones and Discworld, plus tracks on geek feminism, queer fandom, and tons more. Read more about what's oncheck out the guestsand keep up with official news over on the Nine Worlds website.

The con is aiming to be as inclusive, accessible, and family-friendly as possible. Click through to have a look at the 
accessibility info and anti-harrassment policy.

The purpose of this community is to have a space on DW for updates, chat, questions and squee. Feel free to use it to connect to other attendees. 'Looking for roommates/cosplay groups/etc' type posts are fine, as are questions and discussion posts for anything relating to the GeekFest. Please try to keep posts within the inclusive, diverse and family-friendly spirit of Nine Worlds, and have fun!

I only just discovered about this con, so won't be able to make it, but I really hope you can run it again in the future. If you do, it would be great to advertise on [community profile] uk, [ profile] london_fen and [ profile] london_slashers. There may also be some people from [ profile] writerconuk or [community profile] connotations who'd be interested in another UK con.
