What is AICon?
AICon is Tasmania’s longest running pop culture festival, with a focus on the Japanese Anime Industry. The event is held over a weekend in March in Hobart each year and is run by a Not-For-Profit University Society called TasPop (the Tasmanian Pop Culture Society).
What can I see at AICon?
The festival features a variety of cultural demonstrations, competitions, theatre sports, costuming, fashion, video game tournaments, panels, a good range of traders, an auction, anime screenings and more! AICon is also a great place to meet new people with similar interests and is known as a friendly and approachable convention.
Why was AICon created?
Having attended festivals around Australia, TasPop saw a need and an interest for an
event in Tasmania where a growing group of emerging artists, costumers, video editors,
writers and actors could exhibit their talents.
