Staff Den/Green Room Volunteers

Hi Arisians.

As the con gets closer, Staff den and Green Room would like to offer some of you an opportunity to get in volunteer hours *before the con starts*. We need people who have experience in food service, ans understand food safety to help us prepare meals for guests and staff. If you've worked in a kitchen, as a caterer, or have a food safety certification, we'd like your help cooking.


Anime Program Highlights

The Satoshi Kon Legacy series: Saturday is devoted to the anime director Satoshi Kon, who passed away in the summer of 2010. He was a true artistic visionary in his direction of so many outstanding anime films. We also will have a special guest lecturer, Prof. Susan Napier from Tufts, she will discuss Satoshi Kon on Sunday.


We have our film schedule up now.
(fun fact: Arisia is one of the last US sci fi cons still screening 35mm)
