SacGeeks, a collaboration hub for all things nerdy and geeky in the Sacramento and surrounding areas, announces it is partnering with the Cartoon Art Museum again to host QuaranCon Continues… on Saturday, April 4, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST via the brand new web app (app.quarancon.org) created by FilmFestO.com, a new software service from the operators of Sacramento Casting, which can be used through your desktop, laptop or mobile web browser with no downloading.
QuaranCon is a free, virtual comic convention available to anyone with internet access. This online comic convention will feature a virtual ‘panel’ starting every 30 minutes, highlighting an individual or group and directing viewers to access that individual/group’s Facebook Live stream.
“It was such a cool experince to see the local and international community come together with hundreds of people watching for the first QuaranCon online convention in March and see that those videos continue to be watched and engaged with. We’re really excited to help host this experience again for our cartooning and geek communities to reach out to one another and to have a web-based app to streamline it all at app.quarancon.org. We are exceptionally thankful to all the streamers and behind-the-scenes volunteers that are coming together to make this all happen,” reflects program coordinator for the Cartoon Art Museum, Nina Taylor Kester.
Presentations can also be found April 4th and after on the Facebook event (facebook.com/events/148440476513347) and each of their respective Facebook pages (facebook.com/cartoonartmuseum & facebook.com/sacgeeks)!
