I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about GeekGirlCon is how interactive it is. Whether you’re speaking to artists, makers, and entrepreneurs in the Exhibitor Hall, asking questions at an incredible panel, or just meeting fellow geeks, the Con is a space to learn, play, listen, and have fun. Probably nowhere is this more apparent, though, than in the workshops we offer every year.

Spanning a huge swath of topics, from fandom to gaming to cosplay to consent (and beyond!) our workshops are the perfect place to learn how to bring all the joy, passion, excitement, and general goodness from GeekGirlCon out into your day-to-day life.

This year’s workshops promise to be some of the most exciting and intriguing yet! Here’s a look at just a few we have coming up during #GGC18 weekend.

 

Creating a Culture of Consent: From Cosplay to Classrooms

Sunday, 10/28 at 4:00 // Furiosa

Learn about what consent means, sounds, and feels like. We will discuss how and when questions of consent appear in our relationships, in our communities, and in geek culture in this workshop by Planned Parenthood’s Teen Council members. Ages 13+

Mystery Box Game Design Challenge

Saturday, 10/27 at 5:30pm // America

Teams will work together with table top industry experts to create a game using only a box of mystery items. At the end, games will be judged on a set of predetermined criteria and a winner selected!

The GeekGirlCon Webstore Is Now OPEN!

Who doesn’t love a little bit of merch?

Well, we definitely do, and the time is finally here: we’re extremely excited to announce that our webstore has officially launched!

Now you can buy your favorite GGC merch year round. Tees and hoodies galore, we have merchandise emblazoned with the GGC logo, as well as some merch from the 2016 collection available right now for purchase online.

Whether you forgot to grab something at the con, or looking to add to your GGC treasure trove, there’s something for every geek.

It’s important to note that our past collections are limited edition, so we won’t be getting them back in stock once they’re gone. So make sure to grab that special something you’re eyeing while it’s still around (like this awesome Typography Tee from 2015, or a tote from last year!)  

 

Happy shopping!
