Get Your Act In The Ring

We are still looking for programming, panels and events to put into the three rings of Furnal Equinox 2014! We have a three-day show to fill, and plenty of panel rooms under our big tent, the Sheraton Toronto Airport. There are plenty of ways to contribute to the circus, but one big way is to host some programming!

First of all, you can host a panel! If you're really knowledgeable about a particular topic, such as art, writing, or performance, you can share your skill and knowledge with an eager audience. Alternatively, you can also gather together with people with a common trait (maybe you're all the same species, maybe the same age, or the same gender) and share your experiences with each other!

Alternatively, you might want to host a board, tabletop, RPG or video game at the convention. Our zoo, board game and video game areas are a great place to get together with friends and over a set of dice!

Not sure what you'd like to host? Have a look at last year's schedule for examples of events.

Furnal Equinox provides lots of support to our panelists — we'll help promote your panel on social media prior to the convention, as well as putting it in our schedule and in the conbook. We can also supply laptops, projectors, whiteboards, and other items if you need them -- just ask us!

So if you have knowledge to share, a game to play, or want to arrange a gathering of like-minded people, let us know! Submit your programming proposal to us by going to our Events page and filling out the form there. Make sure to get it in by February 8, 2014 so that you can get on our schedule!

Conbook Art and Stories Wanted

Our circus program needs artwork and stories to entertain our attendees. Yes, that's right, our conbook goes to EVERYONE who passes through our doors... so artists and writers, take this opportunity to share your craft with the masses!

The Circus should inspire you with no shortage of thrilling ideas. It may be acrobats dazzling the audience with their daring moves, the sideshow acts making some marvel and some cringe, tamed animals performing astounding feats of strength, power, and courage... or clowns? Everyone likes clowns, right? (Kidding!)

To summarize the artwork and story requirements (full version is on our Conbook page):

  • All artwork and stories should be original, unpublished submissions that fit the theme.
  • We're looking for high quality JPG, PNG or TIF quality images as greyscale or line art.
  • Stories can be no longer than 1,800 words.

You can upload your submissions through the Conbook page as well. This year’s deadline for submissions is February 7, 2014, so get your pen to paper (or stylus to tablet) and get your work in to us before then!
