Let’s all Try to Save Central Canada Comic Con
Well It has been a few Weeks since our Fearless leader has announced to Manitoba and Winnipeg media that Central Canada Comic Con , was to be no more.
This doesn’t necessarily mean the end . It just means that all avenues of trying to get GRANTS and Incentives have been exhausted. Without these putting on a show as a promoter , makes life difficult . Someone has to guarantee the funds to the Rental hall [ who in this case raised the rent to a incredible amount ] Via attendance numbers of past shows . But this formula did not work anymore , as the Ticket price was not going to equal the rental fee for the Building , That’s how high the rent was raised. And the promoter who was trying to keep a formula that would allow people of all Income levels to attend with a low charge per day on tickets .
What can be done , Well We were thinking about having a peaceful Protest near the RBC Convention centre in Winnipeg to show people passing by that , THE SHOW MUST GO ON
So On November 1st 2019 , We can walk along the front and middle sidewalks near the Convention Center with Sign ( pickets) notifying people who pass by that
- The Rent was raised to a amount forcing us out of market
- The economic impact to the area will be felt with lost revenues to Businesses
- That the Conventions brought in people from around the world to share their Crafts and Personalities
- Most attendee’s this would be one of the only times they get to hear from A Famous Celebrity
- Have conversations with people who have like Interests
- To see and hear about the opportunities of the craft of Science Fiction .
- Via Acting
- Writing novels
- Costume design
- Set design and Props
- To learn how to create and develop Comic Book Characters
AND BY ALL MEANS KEEP THIS FUN AND ENGAGING .
