* Creation Station is a collective of panelists who provide a unique “Welcome Wagon” experience in an accessible room, an on-ramp for new content, processes, participants, and paradigms, at multiple cons. We exist specifically to provide safe space, with a fully inclusive, explicitly feminist, anti-racist, allgender/orientation/age/ability/skill-level-welcoming orientation, especially for anyone new to a given con or activity, and/or anyone who has wondered whether they'd safely find a niche in fandom.
