The best thing about Worldcon? People.
Worldcon is an event where awesome people come together. You can find yourself chatting to folks from countries and cultures you’ve barely heard of, share experiences with people from wildly different backgrounds, and listen to programme participants who give new insights into this world we live in as well as those other worlds that a science fiction convention lets us glimpse and analyse.
In reality, not everyone finds it equally easy to attend. The reasons are as diverse as the people: financial obstacles, health challenges, cultural barriers, hesitation about crossing perceived community boundaries all work to separate us from each other. This is why we must work even harder to help others share in the joy and wonder of Dublin 2019 – An Irish Worldcon.
