    Aeternitas 2011

    The Massachusetts-based Harry Potter group HP-MA will be holding a Harry Potter fan conference entitled Aeternitas 2011, at the Margate Resort in Laconia, New Hampshire from April 28th to May 1st, 2011. The three day conference will focus on all things Potter – from academic programming and wizard rock shows to a fashion show and formal ball. All proceeds from Aeternitas 2011 will be donated to two charitable organizations– the Harry Potter Alliance and the Lung Cancer Alliance. The three-night fan event will feature an array of programming that will appeal to every kind of Harry Potter fan. The theme of Aeternitas 2011 is “Magic is Forever” and the conference aims to highlight the participatory nature of the community. The organizers of Aeternitas believe that fandom should be as much of a participatory process as possible and that the community is strongest when members actively provide their talents and creativity, thereby adding their Magic to the fire. As a result, Magic truly is forever. Aeternitas 2011 will encompass two days of academic programming– including panels, discussions, workshops, and Hogwarts-style classes. Additional activities will be conducted over the three days as well– including Quidditch games, two wizard rock shows, a cosplay fashion show, a ball, and a farewell brunch. A keynote luncheon will be held on Thursday, April 28th with authors Leanna Renee Hieber and Violet Haberdasher, who will both discuss their personal journeys from fandom to fiction. New York City’s Epic Win Burlesque troupe will perform a Harry Potter-themed burlesque show written exclusively for Aeternitas on Friday night, April 29th and there will be a cosplay excursion to the Castle in the Clouds on Saturday, April 30th. There will be shuttles running from the local airports.
