Dates for 2015!
And so the sleeping Kawa Kon awakes! Thanks for bearing with us as we've worked to get dates and info for 2015. Kawa Kon Indie, our 7th Kawa Kon, will take place in St. Louis Missouri March 6-8. Our location will be announced soon, but until then you can start suggesting panel, event, and guest ideas on our Facebook page!
Plus Kawa Kon is introducing a schedule app this year. Pick the guests and panels you want to see, and don't worry about dragging a tattered paper schedule with you everywhere! And yes, if you want a paper schedule, we will have those available as well.
Kawa Kon Indie!
Our theme for 2015 will be "Indie". Put on your black glasses, and sip your organic coffee because we'll be bringing in independent creators of all sorts. Learn about promoting yourself on the internet, getting books published in the small press, and creating your own art. Along with the usual Kawa Kon fun and games, we'll include a lot of make-and-take workshops for art, crafts, writing, video production, and more!
New harrassment policies.
Due to incidents at other conventions, we are implementing an anti-sexual harrassment policy for 2014 and beyond. Sexual harrassment here is defined as unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, sexual contact, and intimidation to perform any sexual acts. Physical contact in the form of unwanted groping or molestation will result in the suspect's immediate removal from the convention area. Verbal harrassment that does not stop after a single "no" or negative response from a victim will also result in the suspect's immediate removal from the convention area. If the victim requests it, the police will be called. Mutual, consensual sexual contact between adults is not covered under this policy, but "mutual" means that all parties are involved in said consent. If the victim is underage, the police will be called.

Kawa Kon is on all of them! We already have some followers (how did you find us!?), and you can be one of them! Get all the updates you'd like by subscribing to our Tweets here, following us here, and liking us here.
An Easier-to-Remember Website: KKon.com!
Kawa Kon has yet ANOTHER new website to ad to the growing number of places you can go to get the same info as our homepage. Now all you have to remember is KKon.com! KKon.com will have the same information as kawakon.com, animestl.com, and animestlouis.com (we're keeping all of those, but we're just adding kkon.com to that). We're just doing it to make things easier on you when you're trying to remember how to spell "Kawa". :)
