WCSFA Takes on Stewardship of Northwest Fan Fest

Northwest Fan Fest: We’re not Dead Yet!

The West Coast Science Fiction Association (WCSFA) and The West Coast Fan Society (WCFS) announced today that the show will go on, as WCSFA agrees to accept stewardship of the Northwest Fan Fest convention (previously supported by WCFS) to ensure it will continue as the popular festival of genre media, cosplay and gaming that is has become, and will have the opportunity to grow to its fullest potential.

In the immortal words of Cameron Locke, president of WCFS, “The rumours of NWFF’s demise are greatly exaggerated!”

This year will see several smaller events hosted by WCSFA to promote all the most vital elements of NWFF and keep the heart of NWFF pumping.

“Northwest Fan Fest fills a vital niche in our community, it’s our duty to support it and help it grow,” said Chris Sturges, president of WCSFA, “We are planning a number of smaller events this year to support the community that puts on and attends NWFF.”

The events planned so far include a Walkoff-Rager event, a Gaming-only event, a Costume and Cosplay workshop series, and a Cosplay picnic. If you are interested in helping with these events or have an idea for a fan event, please contact the WCSFA Secretary at secretary [at] wcsfa [dot] org!

TEDxStanleyPark Fundraiser

(March 4, 2017 at 10:00am – 6:00pm)

The West Coast Science Fiction Association (WCSFA) has made a fundraising arrangement with TEDxStanleyPark  for every ticket sold using our promotional code a portion of the price will be donated to our organization.

Curious about what TEDxStanleyPark is? Well, here’s what they have to say on their website:

TEDxStanleyPark is one of the world’s largest TED conferences. High-impact talks address a diverse range of humanity’s tough challenges and offer practical and optimistic solutions. These talks inspire, stimulate and activate thoughtful optimists with open minds and big hearts to move the needle toward a better world. The ‘TEDxStanleyPark’ name was inspired by Vancouver’s iconic Stanley Park – both the park and the conference inspire, stimulate and activate their visitors; the TEDxStanleyPark conference is held in downtown Vancouver and NOT in Stanley Park.

For additional information about the event, including the list of speakers, visit the TEDxStanleyPark website.
