Octocon is going hybrid this year! As well as all our usual panel discussions, workshops, talks and readings taking place both in person at Croke Park and online, we’ll also be giving you the chance to join in hosted chats with other fans on specific topics, or sit down in a small group to talk to one of our attending creators.
Croke Park (Attending Members): We will usually have at least two panels/interviews/talks to choose from at any time, as well as a steady schedule of workshops, fan chats and guest chats. And of course, our usual opening and closing ceremonies, the cosplay parade, and a social event on Saturday evening!
If you bring your own device, you can watch and take part in whatever’s happening online too because an attending membership also gives you access to all our online programme and Discord server.
Online (Virtual & Supporting Members): Through our member portal, you’ll have access to a full stream of online-exclusive panel discussions and interviews, as well as a few programme items streamed live from Croke Park – and you’ll be able to ask questions and interact with all of these. We’ll also be running a full programme of online-only workshops, talks, fan and guest chats and readings, plus you’ll have access to our Discord server for information and socialising. There’ll also be a special Saturday social event…
