An overview of Critericon’s plans for this year and next:
Critericon 2016 is hosting a mini-program of events at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada in August, running alongside Creation Entertainment’s famous Star Trek convention (STLV).
Critericon 2016 is a prequel event. It is an interactive business card – a way to say hello, test out a few theories, and entertain. Critericon will provide an alternate and supplemental schedule of activities for convention attendees and guests. There will be demos, classes, games, and mixers. It’s a great opportunity for creators, performers, and curious folks to relax, engage, learn, and play.
Our crowdfunder & your donations help Critericon get off the ground as a traveling mini convention, initially hosting its promo event at the Rio Hotel in Vegas this year. To see how you can contribute, visit our Contributor page.
Critericon is driven to host mini-programs and events at other conventions. We are working with GaymerX presently, and are already set to run alongside STLV (Star Trek Las Vegas) this year. Our goal is to work with other businesses in order to cross-promote, share resources, support good causes, and help each other grow. We additionally plan to run Critericon 2017 in its full form at its own venue in San Jose, California.
Cheers and love,
She has been involved in the entertainment industry since she was young. As the daughter of songwriters and musicians, and the granddaughter of sound designers for the film industry, she studied many aspects of performance and production, as well as the good and bad within the industry. Without many financial resources, but with support, she was able to take advantage of city and community programs focusing on these arts including theatre, animation, dance, gymnastics, and more. It also sparked her drive to want to help others, so she became a camp counselor, then a teacher, and eventually a consultant and trainer. She works hard to network and bring people together, sharing or creating job opportunities and wants to foster safe and progressive environments.
Her other interests include a love for studying archaeology, cultural evolution, and languages, and she can be found fossil hunting, urban exploring, and creating fictional languages and worlds for games, literature, and fun. Her sense of humor is often reflected in Marx Brothers quotes and mannerisms, Dr. Demento classics which she loves to sing, and certain favorite Monty Python or Police Squad sketch bits which she'll happily enact.
