Running Octocon as a virtual convention means that we need more volunteers than ever in order to make the convention as successful as possible.
If you have a few hours spare on the weekend of the 9th – 11th October (and beforehand for training), especially if you’re familiar with technologies such as Twitch, Zoom and Discord, please volunteer!
Octocon strives to have a varied and lively programme of events, panels, workshops, talks and chats, centred around our guests and programme participants, with typically between 50 and 60 hours of items over the weekend.
Putting together the programme requires a team of enthusiastic, creative people, who are willing to contribute ideas and energy and a couple of hours a week. For 2020, we want to expand our team to make our programme better than ever!
Know anything about science fiction, fantasy, horror, anime, comics, costuming and cosplay, science and technology, or literature, TV, film and random stuff on the internet related to SFF;
Can commit to at least an hour a week – starting with fortnightly meetings, but potentially increasing as October gets closer, depending on how much time you can give;
