Nexus Con is an annual pop-culture convention hosted by Blue Sky Community Services.
Driven by local youth, the event was started in 2015 with a strong focus on diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. Since then, the event has grown from 500 participants to more than 1600 participants in 2019, and continues to get bigger and better every year.
Nexus Con hosts a variety of activities for the whole family, including Cosplay, eSports, Tabletops, Artist Alley, Comics, Zombie Escape Zones, Anime Screenings, and all things pop-culture! It also hosts several special guests who jump into panels, talks, workshops, and signings.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, many events around the world have been cancelled. Cancellation of Nexus Con was not an option for us, as many of our participants place great personal value on the event, and consider it an annual highlight.
So, instead, we have utilised the opportunity to create something bold…. ‘Nexus Online‘ !!
Nexus Online is Australia’s (and possibly the world’s) first entirely online pop-culture convention!
Our community has never been limited by distance, so why start now?
Get ready, because we’re #BreakingBoundaries
It’s time to stock up on snacks, reserve your favourite spot on the couch, the bed or wherever you’re comfy.
For two days we’ll be live-streaming interviews, panels and Q&A with guests such as Dean Rankine, I_Artemis_I, Dan Golding, Chaosium, and the WETA Workshop.
There will also be Art Prizes, Cosplay Competitions, eSports (hosted by the Australian eSports League) and so much MORE!
