News from Norwescon February 2024

Norwescon Charities

Each year we ask Norwescon members to donate items for sale during the convention to support a chosen nonprofit or to offer as prizes to our hard-working volunteers. This year our chosen nonprofit is the Young Black & Brilliant Book Club. Using the transformative power of books, YB&B fosters literacy and life skills for our local youth. They will be joining us at Norwescon this year.

We accept donations of items that are fannish in nature, such as art, jewelry, books, and games. Items will be available for sale throughout the convention in the art show. Please stop by to see what we have to offer—it’s all for a good cause! If you would like to donate an item, please drop it off in the art show with a staff member. Reach out to us about donations at charities@norwescon.org.

Art in Action Returns!

We are pleased to announce that Art in Action will once again happen at Norwescon! A special space will be set aside in the art show where artists can demonstrate how their art is created. This is a great opportunity to see some artists in action, all of whom are also showing in the art show. Demonstrations will occur on Friday and Saturday of the convention during art show open hours, and will be listed on the schedule. Come by, say hello, ask questions, and watch art get made!
