Pemmi-Con, the 15th North American Science Fiction Convention, has announced the First Nations Travel Fund.
The announcement says:
Pemmi-Con has committed to reserve 10% of their Adult Attending memberships, or CAD $4,000, whichever is greater, to assist indigenous science fiction and fantasy fans to travel to Winnipeg to attend Pemmi-Con. This fund will be under the direction of indigenous groups who will contact Pemmi-Con to request funds for individuals whom they believe should be assisted to travel. Pemmi-Con will not make any decisions about who is eligible for funding.
Pemmi-Con is being held July 20-23 2023 at the Delta Hotels Winnipeg and the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg. The travel fund may be used for air, rail, road travel, or accommodations. Individual grants won’t be more than CAD $500 “in order to provide the widest outreach.”
