Fans of color/non-white fans, the following assistance is available now through February 25, 2016:
- Contact 2016, 25-28 March, 2016, Brisbane, Australia. Contact is the 2016 National Speculative Fiction Convention in Australia. Its Guests of Honour are Ben Aaronovitch, Jill Pantozzi, Keri Arthur, Kirilee Barker, and Maria Lewis.
As announced previously, Contact has donated two memberships to Con or Bust. It has also donated up to $550 AUD toward hotel accommodations.
Go to the Request Assistance page to request this assistance, and assistance to any other upcoming SFF con, now through February 25.
Edit: a clarification: if someone needs monetary assistance beyond a Contact membership and hotel assistance, that must be requested through February 25 (because it will be coming out of Con or Bust’s general assistance funds, and therefore must be requested like other COB assistance). Unused hotel assistance from Contact, however, can be claimed after the 25th.
