GeekyCon

Join us at our favorite fan event of the year, GeekyCon! Stop by our booth in the Marketplace to become a member, learn more about our current campaigns (like Protego and Road To Hogwarts 2), and stock up on your wizard gear

You can also catch us at the following places:

  • Wizard Activist Meetup

    Friday 10:30 - 11:20 N310 E

    Are you a Wizard Activist? Are you in a Harry Potter Alliance chapter? Come meet up with other HPA folks, hear about the latest HPA news, and brush up on your Wizard Activist skills.
  • GeekyCon v HPA Quidditch Match

    Friday 16:30 - 17:50 Marketplace

    Every year, your favorite geeks from the Harry Potter Alliance and the GeekyCon staff duke it out on the Quidditch pitch. Come cheer on the GeekyCon team as we kick their butts {while} running the convention. (Or you can cheer on the HPA. Whatever. We won't judge.)
  • We Are The Crystal Gems!

    Saturday 11:00 - 11:50 N220 A/B

    When the Crystal Gems got to Earth, they were amazed by what they found and they vowed to protect it—and we can too. Let's talk about what each of the gems represents and what we can learn from them.
  • Transfiguring Safe Spaces

    11:00  11:50 N210 D/E

    Whether you’re transgender yourself or want to learn how to be a better ally, this session will guide you through basic gender concepts, an exploration of your own identity, and steps you can take in your life to make every space a safe space.
  • How to Become a Fan Activist and Save the World In 50 Easy Minutes

    Saturday 12:00  12:50 N220 F/G

    At GeekyCon, everyone is passionate about something (usually lots of somethings!) When your passion expands beyond fictional stories to real-world causes, it’s time to take action. But how do you rally other people for your cause and stay true to the morals and optimism you’ve learned from fandom? Join leaders of the Harry Potter Alliance for a presentation on how they’ve successfully done just that for the past eleven years and how you can begin to do the same in your own life. Get ready to power up from fan to fan activist.
  • Finding Your Origin Story

    Saturday 13:00 - 13:50 N220 F/G

    All heroes have great origin stories that determine their moral compasses. You’re no different, but it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of injustice you’re up against. How do you even start to identify the issues you want to tackle? This workshop is designed to explore which values guide you in your fight for social justice—and in the rest of your life.
  • HPA vs. GeekyCon Lip Sync Battle at the Closing Ceremony

    Sunday 15:00  15:50 MainStage

    Join us in closing out GeekyCon 2016. There will be reminiscing and basking in the afterglow of a brand new Harry Potter story... and maybe even a lip-sync battle?
