Our friends at The Orbit are hosting their first online convention, OrbitCon on April 13-15. It will be accessible on YouTube and free to watch. It’s like a secular convention that you can watch from the comfort of your own home. From their first post:
Panels should broadly fit The Orbit’s themes of atheism, activism, and culture and our identity as a social justice network. That doesn’t mean they have to be super serious, solemn discussions. We’re anticipating a music “panel” that includes performance, and we’ll be shocked if we don’t have panels on Steven Universe and Black Panther.
They’re currently looking for panel and speech proposals. There’s more information on their main page.
We’re currently thinking of our panel proposals. What panels do you think we should propose? Alien religions? The cryptids of Bolingbrook? Will future Bolingbrook residents worship Mayor Roger Claar? Is it safe to punch space Nazis? Bolingbrook: The most important village in the galaxy?
No matter what panel we propose, this is promises to be a fun and thoughtful event hosted by our sister network.
