Thank you and followups!

 

KinkForAll Boston is over, but this page and its related pages will continue to evolve.

 

Although the unconference itself is now over, this is just the beginning. Some things to do now are:

 

 

UPDATE: Back-up Venue Confirmed: We are ON for this Saturday at Boston University

 

Our original venue, the University of Massachusetts Boston, is no longer able to host KinkForAll Boston, but thanks to your help and the fantastic support of other students, we've confirmed a back-up venue, Boston University, centrally located within Boston.

 

All event information confirmed; see you at 10:30 AM on Saturday — Thank you all so much!

 

We will have a KinkForAll event on Saturday in Boston as (almost) originally planned. Thank you all again for your amazing outpouring of support and quick action to make this possible.

Needs list

 

Support equipment is still in the process of being organized. Currently, we have need (or want) of the items on the following list. If you can provide something and are able to make it available for others to use as well, add it to the KinkForAllBostonInventory lists. If you are bringing something from the list below, remove that item from the needs list, as well.

 

  • Digital projectors, for presentations
  • Wireless Internet access devices, such as 3G modems that can be connected to Wi-Fi routers
  • Livebloggers (assuming we get Internet access); anyone tech-savvy enough to join our chatroom, and interact with participants who can not be physically present. (Here's an example from a previous event.)

 

Location and Directions

 

Thanks to the amazing crunch-time work of many university students, KinkForAll Boston has a green light to go ahead. We're being graciously hosted by the fine folks at Boston University, located at 775 Commonwealth Avenue. We will be located in the lower level of the George Sherman Union at the Women's' Resource Center and we will have at least 2 rooms of varying size, as well as a very small rooms that may become designated social space(s). The stairs on the outside of the building (rather then the attractive main entrance) are the best way to enter.  If you are looking at the cammus map, these stairs are located in the center of building 11.

 

Boston University is on the "B" branch of the Green Line, but is walkable from Kenmore Square, or you could take the 57 bus from Kenmore so you can take the "C" or "D" branch to that stop.  It is also on the 57, 47 and CT2 bus routes. It is walkable via the BU Bridge from parts of MIT, which also runs a shuttle. Here's a printable PDF of directions to the Charles River Campus.

I assume that "publicity design" in the Needs List is something intended to mean posters, flyers, hand outs or other similar handbills, but is that really a necessary item for the event itself? I don't think so, so it should probably be removed from the event's Need list. Objections?

I think it would be good to maybe clarify what that means, but also things like food and internet are not strictly needed for KFA Boston to happen, just things that are going to help the event succeed. Having an informative handout to give to people to take with them to munches/events in advance could help raise our profile and may be the sort of thing someone can donate design skills or resouces for.

I don't think we necessarily need a design for publicity, but we do actually need publicity.

I've modified the "publicity design" line item above to more precisely and simply reflect what was intended.

I can do the flyer design and do a set of web graphics/link banners. Some of the stuff I have done lately is up at http://www.acuriousproduction.com

Hey everyone, Zac made us an awesome tear-off flyer! I added a link to it at the top of this page. If you're able to do so, please download the file (it's a PDF), print out a bunch of copies, and then flyer around your neighborhood. I already know at least three coffee shop poster boards where I'm going to put flyers up!
