THE organisers of GAMMA.CON have been in touch to let us know they’re planning a day of pop culture fun at the Woden Hellenic Club on May 24 from 9 to 6pm.
“GAMMA.CON will be a showcase of everything that is making popular culture such a phenomenon right now from books and movies to comics and videogames. Taking up the entire top floor of the Woden Hellenic Club with doors opening at 9am, GAMMA.CON will be a non stop, action packed day. An all ages event that aims to provide Canberrans with an equal mix of entertainment, industry and education,” the organisers said.
“GAMMA.CON will feature a screening room for screening of popular anime shows, western cartoons and live action films including locally produced movies from the last ten years of Canberra’s short film festivals. There will also be interactive panels all day long with guests, professionals and hobbyist speakers on topics like videogame development, writing books, making movies, running Role Play games, sewing costumes and journalism.
“GAMMA.CON will also have an action packed gaming section that will feature board game, card game and videogame tournaments, free play videogames (including next generation PS4 and XBOXONE machines), free play arcade machines and a showcase of locally developed videogames from teams in Canberra.”
