GeekGirlCONLINE ’21 Schedule is HERE!
GeekGirlCONLINE ‘21 WILL BE HERE IN LESS THAN A MONTH! If you haven’t already, mark your calendars for November 13 and 14!
In case you haven’t seen already, we’ve recently announced our full programming schedule. We’ve got a packed schedule—from the DNA of strawberries to BIPOC artists in animation, there’s truly something for everyone this year. Read on for full details about each event.
Saturday, November 13
Kicking off our GeekGirlCONLINE ‘21 programming on Saturday is the DIY Science Zone at 2 p.m.
Roses are red, violets are blue, it turns out that roses can be blue too? It all depends on pH! Pull the DNA out of a strawberry with a little soap, a little salt, and a mighty SQUISH!
Next up, a panel discussing The Books That Got Us Through at 4 p.m.
Find out what you may have missed during quarantine, add a few books to that growing to be read pile, and add some up and comers to your holiday wish list! Seattle librarians and book lovers will unite to discuss the books that got them through the ongoing pandemic.
But that’s not all! Concluding our first day is Straight Ahead: My First Steps in the Animation Industry at 6 p.m.
Straight Ahead Animation Podcast hosts a roundtable discussion with Stephanie Rizo Garcia, Samia Khalaf, and Li Cree. These rising women of color will be sharing stories from early on in their careers, such as how they broke into the animation industry. What better way to learn what working in animation is like than from those who are experiencing it. Tune in and see how we can all have a bright future straight ahead!
Sunday, November 14
Starting off day two of GeekGirlCONLINE ‘21 is Game Development for All: Our Stories, Our Roles at 2 p.m.
What is it like to make video games? Join the women from Harebrained Schemes–the makers of BATTLETECH and the Shadowrun series–as they talk about how they entered the games industry, challenges they’ve faced and overcame, and how you can leverage your skills into a games job. From design to engineering, art to production, you’ll learn about the roles within a games studio, the future of the games industry, and how we can make games a better place to work for everyone.
After that we have Wellness for Geeks Who Sit at 4p.m.
Do you know a group of gamers, writers, cosplayers, artists, or simply folks who spend a lot of time sitting at a desk? This seated movement-based workshop is designed to help with those aches and pains that we develop over time from being hunched over the latest armor build or beating the final boss. Attendees will leave with a brand-new set of skills in their health arsenal including mobility stretches, strength movements, and nutritional tips.
And we’ll conclude our con and week with d20 Dames – D&D Live! at 6 p.m.
The d20 Dames, a daring group of adventurers and storytellers, are back this year for another epic and thrilling Dungeons and Dragons adventure. This year we’re LIVE, and anything could happen. Please join us for the fantastic conclusion to GeekGirlCONLINE 2021!
That’s it for programming, but we’ll be back next week to give you details on this year’s Virtual Expo Hall! Which session are you looking forward to most?
