About Continuum

Continuum is an annual Melbourne speculative fiction and pop culture fan convention celebrating creativity across genre and media. From hard-edge science fiction to high-flown fantasy, comic books to film noir, high culture to sub-culture… we sink our teeth into it all! Continuum is run on a not-for-profit basis and all revenue goes towards venue and equipment hire, transport and accommodation for our guests, and other convention specific expenses. The Continuum Foundation supports Continuum conventions and we are grateful for their support.

Continuum 10 will take place on the Queen’s Birthday Weekend, June 6 — 9, 2014. Our guests of honour this year are Jim C. Hines and Ambelin Kwaymullina. Supporting them will be a wide range of other speakers and panellists in a fabulous line up of panels, presentations and special events.

Continuum 10 is also proud to be host convention for the 53rd Australian National Science Fiction Convention for 2014.

About Continuum 10

Continuum 10: Carnival of Lost Souls will lead you to the bright lights of speculative fiction and pop culture and amaze you with surprise endings, sparkling new patterns and challenge your assumptions. Be delighted by hard-edged science, high-flying fantasy, brightly coloured comic books and mysterious film noir. High culture, sub-cultures and everything in between, all can be found at the Carnival. Once the Carnival’s been to town, nothing is ever quite the same.

Continuum Foundation

The Continuum Foundation (ConFound) is the parent of our convention and we are very grateful for their support. ConFound was started by Danny Oz to oversee and take care of some of the administrative work for the Continuum Conventions. Continuum Foundation Inc. is a not for profit association incorporated under the Victorian Associations Act, 1994.

ConFound oversees the Chronos Awards, the Ian Gunn Memorial Award, and the annual Continuum conventions. The Foundation also hosts a wiki to help distribute information about Victorian SF fandom and running conventions.

While ConFound’s main stated goal is to help with the running of the Continuum Conventions, its other ambitions are to help foster and create a strong fannish community within Victoria and Australia, and to ‘be useful’ to the wider fan community. Danny Oz, the current Chair, is fond of saying; “The moment the Foundation stops making things easier for people, it stops having a purpose.”
