I’ve been asked to give what time I can to a new project that is happening through the month of February this year. It’s the brainchild of Kevin Steil from Airship Ambassador and is designed to bring steampunks from all over the world together.
I’ll be posting what information is fed to me, but please pop along over to Airship Ambassador and look at what he’s up to. You can also take a look at the page of the rather lovely Suna Dasi of Steampunk India. She contacted me initially about this adventure. Give support, get involved and let me know what you’re doing and I’ll post it on the Journal.
9th January, 2014: Just as current day expressions of steampunk are not limited to the literature where it began, the people in the steampunk community are not bound to any one geographical region. Steampunk appears in many forms, and with its popularity, the community has grown to encompass the world.
The celebration and sharing of that global association is at the heart of a new project, Steampunk Hands Around the World, by Kevin Steil, the creator and editor of steampunk news and information resource website, Airship Ambassador. With more than three dozen steampunk creators – bloggers, authors, event organizers, and others – also participating, the month long project is a multi format media presentation about the international connections and communications in the community, for steampunks and non-steampunks alike.
Beginning Sunday, February 2nd and continuing until Friday, February 28th, the group will show and share that steampunks everywhere are linked together and that new friends are waiting in every conversation.
Steampunk, in its many forms, brings people together in an inclusive and helpful network of similar mind. From sharing book and music review opinions, to playing the newest games and sharing DIY information on fashion and props, the steampunk community easily and comfortably brings together people ages eight to eighty in ways not often seen in other communities.
The full and updated-daily list of participating websites, blogs and events will be posted in the kick-off blog on the Airship Ambassador blog site:
