|ConBust is a sci-fi/fantasy/anime/gaming convention put on each spring by students at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. This three-day event provides fans of various geekdoms the opportunity to gather and enjoy their interests as a whole. Panels and workshops, as well as movie and anime showings, can be found in great abundance throughout the weekend. And of course, we have a fabulous array of guests who will be showing.
What sets ConBust apart from most other sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and/or gaming conventions is its focus on women members of the participating community. While the various realms of geekdom remain stereotypically male-dominated, ConBust is held to celebrate the work of women amongst these genres.
