Activity Or Talk
You may submit more than one event idea, but please submit each event idea separately.
FurCoNZ likes to offer a wide range of activities from educational, inspirational, to emotional, and of course entertaining! But, did you know that nearly all of our activities are suggested and planned by attendees just like you?
We’re looking for attendees who want to lead discussions, panels, or plan activities that can bring like minded individuals together at con!
Let us know what kind of activity you’d like to host at FurCoNZ!
Your name may appear on our activities page and in the conbook. Please make this consideration when filling in the form.
SOME RECOMMENDATIONS/NOTES REGARDING ACTIVITIES:
- Keep your activity time slot under 60 minutes. In most cases, panels lasting longer than an hour tend to lose the crowd’s interest.
- Be more general rather than specific. The more narrow a focus your panel topic has, the less likely a large number of people will wish to attend.
- Are you funny? Are you sure? Humour is great, but be sure that your humour is suitable for a wide range of tastes and that it’s not mean-spirited or hateful. We’re inclusive and want our activities to be the same.
- Be part of our theme! Panels that are within the FurCoNZ theme are more likely to be approved.
- Be creative! FurCoNZ is always willing try new activity ideas, so don’t be afraid to submit your idea.
- Is your idea potentially “18+”? “Adult Only” panels due to sexual content will only be permitted to run after 9pm on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Other types of panels will be permitted throughout the rest of the con schedule.
- Involve the crowd! Activities that allow the crowd to participate in some way are always a good option!
- In some instances, if the same activity submission is made by two or more different individuals, we may ask those panellists to work together to host a panel/event.
You may submit more than one activity idea, but please submit each activity idea separately.
Not every activity submission will be approved, but they will all certainly be considered and each one will be reviewed by staff.
