The VCON Website has been updated for VCON 2021. The 50th Anniversary of VCON. It’s just a teaser page for now, but we just wanted you to know that we are working on bringing you a special event for this momentous occasion. The Theme this year will be:
VCON 2021: Looking Forward, Looking Back!
2021 marks 50 years since the first VCON, held at UBC in 1971. Our first Guest of Honour was Ursula K Leguin, and that was her first convention as Guest of Honour! our history is full of wonderful moments and anecdotes, and we hope to relive many of the great moments and guests as we look back at 50 years of VCON.
Looking forward to the next 50 years, Science Fiction and Fantasy have become a real part of our life. Virtual Reality, pocket communicators, transparent aluminium, Mars missions, Hyperloop travel are all accessible. We have 3d printers, Home Gene Mod kits, vat-grown meat, wireless communication, wireless power, and planet-wide collaboration opportunities. We all have the ability to dream and bring those dreams into being… What will that look like?
It’s just a teaser page for now. But keep checking back and stay tuned to our social media for updates.
Hmm, it seems some of these things are not like the other ones . . .
