About

Science fiction is how we imagine the future. We shape our visions through literature, film, television, and art. Our imaginings, at some point in the future, may become reality. 

For more than five years NanoCon has been an exciting event at Lower Columbia College. This community event hosted by students and alumni with the support of staff, faculty, and community members, provides science fiction fans with a creative outlet to share their vision. NanoCon has inspired children of all ages to look beyond the now.

UPDATE: Doug Jones has agreed to appear at NanoCon Mk. VI

NanoCon Mk. IV - Team Members

Previous events have included gamers, cosplayers, makers, writers, scientists, filmmakers, musicians, artists, and of course, a few attendees. It’s been fun but not enough people have been able to enjoy the excitement of the NanoCon activities.

NanoCon participants have included science fiction writers Greg and Astrid Bear, James Wells, and Ken Lizzi-- science educator John Gibbs -- noted film director Steve De Jarnett -- Comic book illustrator Tadd Galusha and many others. The NanoCon International Film Festival has attracted thousands of short-subject filmmakers from almost every country on the planet.

Your contributions to the NanoQuest campaign will fund these expansions:

  • Hosting well known celebrity guests
  • Diverse food services for guests, speakers, volunteers, and vendors
  • Previewing a full week of the NanoCon International Film Festival submissions at various venues throughout the community
  • Increasing the NanoCon Convention from 1 to 3 buildings on campus

Typically NanoCon has been funded through small fundraising activities and donations of in-kind support materials from the local community. These efforts have helped NanoCon grow over the years but our growth is slowing. Volunteer fundraising efforts have made it difficult to overcome the financial hurdle necessary to move us to the next level. We need your help.

NanoCon Mk. VI begins March 22, 2019. We want to host an event that draws in 500 attendees. Our goal is to expand the event while maintaining the intimacy of a small convention. This boost will give us the momentum to sustain managed growth and community involvement for future NanoCon events.

Risks and challenges

This is a heavy lift for the NanoCon Management Team. However, we've consulted with convention experts and they advised us on the perfect level of growth to ensure success.

Capping our attendance at 500 persons will provide us the opportunity to pay key staff and volunteers to support convention activities.
