Your Imagined Furry Fantasy (18+ ONLY)
This light-hearted RPG-esque system designed by SteelTheWarrior was borne of frisky fantasy, silly stories of over-the-top shenanigans and inspired by popular flash games like Corruption of Champions, Trials in Tainted Space and Flexible Survival! Gameplay gives players a different perspective on the psychology behind modern-day sexuality and taboo as they adventure in a world where just about everything is over-sexualized (including combat!) to offer silly-fun and sex-positive escapades!

18+ ONLY. ID REQUIRED TO ATTEND

Your Imagined Furry Fantasy (18+ ONLY)
This light-hearted RPG-esque system designed by SteelTheWarrior was borne of frisky fantasy, silly stories of over-the-top shenanigans and inspired by popular flash games like Corruption of Champions, Trials in Tainted Space and Flexible Survival! Gameplay gives players a different perspective on the psychology behind modern-day sexuality and taboo as they adventure in a world where just about everything is over-sexualized (including combat!) to offer silly-fun and sex-positive escapades!

18+ ONLY. ID REQUIRED TO ATTEND

From "Nation" to "Planet:" Writing the "Furry Nation" Sequel
Joe Strike is a certified greymuzzle. He’s been part of the Furry community since 1988 when he received a surprise invitation to the very first east coast furry party.

After watching our subculture spread across the world, Joe wrote "Furry Nation," his 2017 account of Furry’s birth, its earliest days and the first generation of furs who made it all happen.

Since then our community has grown ever larger; every day more and more people across the globe realize their furriness and launch their own conventions. With more Furry in the world than ever before, Joe is in the midst of writing "Furry Planet," scheduled for a 2022 release by Apollo Publishers.

Joe will describe the challenge of documenting our dynamic community, reaching people who have brought Furry to their own country, and the hurdles and rewards they faced along the way. "Planet" will also examine aspects of Furry overlooked in "Furry Nation:" furry authors, entrepreneurs and therians, as well as the increasing presence of anthropomorphism in popular and high culture, from superhero films to performance art. (Attendees are welcome to suggest additional topics for "Furry Planet" to explore.)

Collaboration Confuzilcation: A Furry Art Jam!
Can you draw, doodle or scribble? Are you quick-witted? Play well with others? Then join the Collaboration Confuzilcation!

Here's how it works: every player will receive a formatted, 4-panel sheet of paper; a word will be chosen at random and each player will have twelve minutes to draw a picture in the first panel based on that word.

THEN everyone passes their paper to the next person…a new word is selected and that person draws a picture in the next panel based on the new word…that also continues the story started in the previous panel! The challenge: each panel has to continue the previous panel's story - while drawing a picture based on the new word at the same time!

The process is repeated for the third and fourth panels, until the page is filled with a masterpiece of collaborative creativity (and weirdness!)

We’ll supply that formatted drawing paper, but please bring your own pens, pencils and erasers. Participation is limited to the first 36 people to arrive, but everyone is welcome to stay and observe.

Freedom of Form: Make It Real
The Freedom of Form Foundation is working to support, undertake, and popularize scientific research that will enable freedom of one’s physical form – biotech for self-expression. We’re rising to the challenge, and our outreach and research activities are already having a big impact.

We’ve talked with Anders Sandberg, Hugh Herr, Master Tailer, Liz Parrish, Max More, and other key opinion leaders (check out those interviews on our YouTube!). And, we’ve been hitting the gas pedal on research projects as well. Our 3D Anatomy project, Integument Review project, and others are getting strategically valuable results. We’re excited to share our most recent updates with you.

Join us to hear what we’ve been up to, see where we’re going next, and give your input as well. We want to hear your feedback and ideas!

How well is your job working for YOU? The average adult in the United States spends over 90,000 hours “at work” over the course of their lifetime.

Your Imagined Furry Fantasy (18+ ONLY)
This light-hearted RPG-esque system designed by SteelTheWarrior was borne of frisky fantasy, silly stories of over-the-top shenanigans and inspired by popular flash games like Corruption of Champions, Trials in Tainted Space and Flexible Survival! Gameplay gives players a different perspective on the psychology behind modern-day sexuality and taboo as they adventure in a world where just about everything is over-sexualized (including combat!) to offer silly-fun and sex-positive escapades!

18+ ONLY. ID REQUIRED TO ATTEND
