What is NerdCon?
NerdCon Umea is a yearly convention aimed for all kinds of people who are interested in video games, tabletop role-playing, live-action role-playing (larp), manga and anime, comics and cartoons, science fiction, fantasy - and more! Our aim is to connect all kinds of "nerds" and encourage them to see and try out new things. This is why the programme of our events contains a wide variety of different activities, workshops, lectures and contests.
The first NerdCon was arranged in 2013, with about 150 visitors, and since then the event has grown every year.
The sixth NerdCon Umea will be arranged in August 2018 at Umeå Folkets Hus, almost in the city centre. More information on opening times, ticket prices and convention programme will be added later.
Interested in becoming a voluntary worker?
NerdCon needs enthusiastic volunteers to set up the locale before the convention, to keep Folkets Hus clean and cosy during the event, to sell tickets (and merchandize?), to keep the activities up and running, etc. Swedish language skills are needed in many of the volunteer tasks, but not required in some, such as cleaning and setting up the locale.
In return for their help, the volunteer workers receive free tickets to the convention, a place in the sleeping hall, vouchers for food and a nice NerdCon T-shirt.
The volunteer workforce application will open later in the spring.
If you have questions or are interested in applying in English, please contact thew workforce personnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
