Events are back – and so we are. The keepsakes. team is on and around again doing what we do best: Share stories together with our friends in the community. This time, we are visiting the 6200 Geek Con, happening at the Southview Hotel in Brgy. Banilad, Dumaguete City on the weekend of June 11 and 12, 2022.
Organized by Karen J. A. Gumapac and Portia Bernadette N. Bation of Art Moves PH, and co-organized by the Silliman University Geek Culture Society, the 6200 Geek Con has a total of 10 exhibitors, 29 artist booths, and two days of activities for the Negrense audience. (The ZIP code for Dumaguete City is 6200.)
The Geek Con won’t be complete without guests, and they brought in cosplayers Ran Chii, Alan V., Ai Natsumi, Mais Semblante, and Diane. Diane, Mais and Ranchii are well-known in Cebu’s cosplay community, and Ai from Manila has made a name for herself over time. If there are Takodachis in Dumaguete, would you mind saying hi to Alan V. for us?
They also have an art talk and book signing with Xteve Abanto, one of Marvel’s cover artists, who will share his art journey. He’s also a cover artist for Aconyte Books.
As of press time, they will only be selling 50 pieces of 1-day passes per day on site, so better be early and secure yours if you haven’t yet.
The 6200 Geek Con happens at Southview Hotel, Brgy. Banilad, Dumaguete City on June 11 and 12 from 9:00am until 8:00pm. For more information, visit the SU Geek Culture Society on Facebook.
