……………………………………………………………………………..
Every person has an unwritten adventure waiting to begin, a fantasy that fuels their soul and a prophesy that must be fulfilled. As close as a midnight dream, a mystical realm exists where all your deepest desires come true. A place where magic and science are one in the same and the future is brought into the present.
Welcome to the world of Geektopia, a one-day event held in Vancouver, British Columbia that specializes in all genres of entertainment and fandoms. Whether you’re interested in Anime, Fantasy, Horror or Science fiction; this is the place where you belong. A community that accepts all, practices tolerance and celebrates diversity.
Geektopians have long practiced the philosophy of philanthropy. In honour of this tradition, we will continue our fight to protect the innocent, speak for those who are silenced and help rebuild spirits.
The goal of Geektopia is to bridge the gaps between entertainment and education. We hope to create opportunities for fans to dive deeper into their cherished genres by holding seminars, panels, open gaming and cosplay events with prizes to stimulate their minds or to further their quest to be a part of the entertainment industry and of course a big vendors market. From local artists to aspiring actors, from sci-fi geeks to fantasy freaks, there is a place for everyone.
We have partnered up with the Amanda Todd Legacy Society to lend our voices to end bullying. Bullying and cyberbullying takes on many forms and can affect people to their very core. It is our job to shine a light on this and give voices to those individuals who may feel alone and helpless. By coming together, we have a bigger chance of educating the public and raising awareness on preventing future aggression towards victims. With your help, we can be one step closer to a world free of bullying.
We humbly invite you to GEEKTOPIA 2019. Part of the proceeds will be donated in Amanda’s honour. Please join us in a fun filled day full of activities, panels, seminars, vendors, artists and much more. By attending, you will help bring hope back into someone’s life. Can’t wait to see you at Vancouver’s Newest Comic Convention!
