Our 13th annual Oslo SusCon will be held from Monday 21st – Saturday 26th July 2014.
In the years past we have had our SusCon from Friday to Sunday, but our supercool venue, Månefisken, was not able to give us the weekend “for free” anymore, so we decided to move it to the weekdays instead. This year we will do an extended SusCon starting on Monday for crew and volunteers, the main event on Tuesday – Thursday, an extra day Friday on Blitz, ending with the BBQ on Saturday.
More info and registration on our webpage will be announced. http://www.wingsofdesire.org/events
The event is open to the public from 17:00 to 21:00 on Wednesday and Thursday. CC 100,-
From its very first year, Oslo SusCon has been an international gathering with two main purposes:
first and foremost, it is an opportunity to suspend, secondly it is a meeting place to share knowledge among practitioners of all levels. The convention is also a social arena for making friends and networking in our community. Every year we invite suspension teams from around the world to work alongside our local team, this is a good way to show others how we work and to get feedback and learn from our guests as well.
At the Oslo SusCon we cover most bases by having introduction to the weekend and suspension varieties by Håvve, guest speakers who talk about body suspension and other related activities, videos and photos from past events, and live performance. There are areas for on-line computing, chill out zones, and a dining area for common meals twice a day. The meals served are vegetarian and catered from the legendary Cafe Blitz. In the past few years the after party has become a traditional conclusion of the SusCon with BBQ, Booze, and Branding.
For selected hours during the event, we open the venue to the general public. We have chosen to open the doors for outsiders for several reasons: participants who want to suspend with their friends and family present can invite them to attend the open hours, people with an itch for hooks get an opportunity to have a closer look at how it all goes down, and the curious citizens can come and have a peek into our colorful world of body modification and suspension.
