My Arisia Schedule
[misc] dreamers
genarti
Who else is going to Arisia? I'll keep an eye out for you, or we can even dare the con busyness gods by planning to get together for a meal or something! (On the one hand, I'll be running around a lot like everyone else, but on the other hand I'll be staying at the con hotel and thus relatively findable.)

Here's the schedule of stuff I'll definitely be at, on account of being a panelist or otherwise engaged to be responsibly present:

Friday

Singing Into The Night (song circle) -- 11:30pm -- Paine
Description: Open Singing descends into chaos. Music will continue as long as people are interested.
(Translation: How late the late-night open filk goes will depend on everyone's energy levels, and how late I'm there will depend on my energy levels, but both Ellen Kranzer and I will be there for at least an hour or two to help keep things going.)


Saturday

Introduction to Asexuality -- 7:00pm -- Marina 3
Dash (mod), Fish, Faith Karklin, Elizabeth Birdsall
Description: We're all familiar by now with the sexual orientations homosexual, heterosexual, and bi/pansexual. Much less discussed are asexuals, people who do not experience sexual attraction (but who may experience romantic attraction). We'll discuss what asexuality is and is not, the umbrella of asexual identities, and talk about some common challenges asexual people face and why visibility matters.

Singing Into The Night (song circle) -- 11:30pm -- Paine
Description: Open Singing descends into chaos. Music will continue as long as people are interested. (In other words, same as Friday night for me.)


Sunday

Knitting 101/102/201 -- 10:00am -- Faneuil
Aimee Yermish (mod), Elizabeth Birdsall, Felicitas Ivey, Rachel Kadel-Garcia
Description: Learn beginning knitting, expand your skills, or challenge a serious knitter with your craziest ideas. Bring some of your stash to show off!


Monday

The Story Within the Story -- 2:30pm -- Marina 2
Heather Urbanski (mod), Elizabeth Birdsall, MJ Cunniff, Greer Gilman, Sonya Taaffe
Description: Relatively few SFnal works give narrative the kind of central role within their heroes’ world that it often plays in our own. What works have best created stories within a story, and which are notable for the absence of a literary tradition where you might expect to find one?
(This is definitely the panel I'm looking forward to most! Everyone I know on this panel says really interesting things, and I love the topic. It's at 2:30 on Monday, so we'll see who all comes, but you never know.)
