Become a Sponsor

Alaska Robotics Mini-Con takes place on April 22, 2017 and we hope to have your support in making it a great event for the community.

Last year we hosted Juneau’s first-ever comic convention and it exceeded our wildest expectations. Thousands of kids and adults flocked to downtown Juneau to meet award winning authors, filmmakers and illustrators and participate in workshops and presentations given by our guests.

Comic conventions are more than just comics. They’ve grown into festivals celebrating popular culture and visual arts. Our tiny convention has taken on much of that same spirit, incorporating costumes, games and music alongside illustration, zines and comics.

There were sketching sessions where kids could draw with renowned artists like Kazu Kibiushi and many of our visiting guests were able to visit public schools to work with students of all ages.

In addition to the convention, we hosted a three day comics camp. The sense of community and collective inspiration of the camp was remarkable, and we are excited at the idea of bringing together a new group this year.

Here’s What We Need

Fish & Game – We want to treat people right and that means good food at our artist camp. Donations of fish or game will be incorporated into meals by our camp cook.

Financial Aid – We have camp attendees from all over Alaska and North America. Your direct sponsorship of a camp attendee could make it possible for them to attend and get a taste of Southeast Alaska.

Sponsorships – Local business sponsors are what make this event work. This is what helps to bring guests and attendees to the camp and cover costs associated with printing, advertising and hosting an event of this scale in a town of this scale.

Exhibit or Participate!!

If you or your business would like to exhibit at the event, please visit our website and fill out an Exhibitor Application form. We are also accepting applications from student organizations if you know any young artists might want to share their comics or artwork.

We would love to see downtown businesses embrace the spirit of the event. Please contact us if you would like to host an event, many of our guests will be available if you have a fun idea. (Eg: Fashion Illustration Workshop, Drink & Draw Event, Handmade Postcards, etc)
