logoistrakon

The year 2017 represents a special anniversary and accomplishment for Istrakon because the convention will be celebrating its 18th birthday, thus officially becoming an adult. The convention is going to be held 7-9 April 2017. The connection between humanity and technology and the possibility of creating digital worlds and living in them will be the driving motif behind this year's main theme, the theme of "Virtual Reality". Virtual reality has fascinated people since the first stereoscopic pictures that gave the illusion of depth, to today's modern VR headsets that can partially transport people into created digital worlds and has proven to be a fertile ground for many science fiction writers, TV script writers and movie directors. The sudden development and popularisation of VR headsets have renewed the interest in virtual reality and its possible effects on humanity.

logoalbus

"Albus" from Pazin(full name "SF&F Albus") is a cultural club dedicated to research and promotion of science fiction, fantasy, mythology and alternative sciences.

It was officialy registered in the year 2003. although it's members were already operating on similar parameters as a section of the now closed "Klub Mladih-Bad taste". The club's program consists of organising yearly events such as science fiction and fantasy convention "Istrakon" since 2000., the publishing of science fiction short story collections in collaboration with POU Pazin, and shorter events like weekly informal game nights and gatherings, presenting games to the wider public especially the young,creating costumes and props,visiting other conventions across Croatia( Sferakon, Essekon, Rikon, Liburnikon),communication and collaboration with other similar clubs,collaboration with clubs and institutions(such as kindergartens and schools) that work with children and finding ways to a include the youth in promoting not only science fiction and fantasy but also progressive thought and mentality.

albusEkipa

Through our activities and work on promoting scence fiction and fantasy we managed to affirm ourselves as one of the most active clubs in Pazin and positively contribute to cultural and touristic image of Istra and Pazin. As a direct evidence on the positive influence of our club is the fact that all hotels and hostels around Pazin are completely booked during "Istrakon" and the convention and club were featured on national televisions( HTV, RTL, NOVA TV, RAI, RTVFBH). "Albus" is famous not only among the fans of SF and fantasy but also among the citizens of Pazin for promoting science fiction and fantasy and offering new ways of thinking and having fun for the youth. Our example and work influenced on many informal gatherings of individuals interesed in science fiction and fantasy in many cities across Istra (Pula, Rovinj, Umag, Buzet, Labin). In this way we directly contributed to enrichment of science fiction and fantasy culture in Istra.

LOGO ISTRAKON

Istrakon is a science fiction and fantasy convention that is being held once a year for the last 18 years at Spomen Dom in Pazin.

The convention comprises of three primary parts - educational,practical and entertaining. The educational part consists of lectures that cover a wide array of subjects(from purely scientific subjects from the field of physics,technology, biology to social sciences like history of literature and cinematography,sociology, anthropology, ethnology and psychology, and even alternative sciences and history), the practical part focuses on various workshops suited for all ages while the entertaining part provides atendees with numerous games ranging from quizes to various physical games and a live music concert.

Istrakon's strenght lies not only in the richness of it's program but also in the high quality of lectures and lecturers so every year we try to maintain that level of quality by bringing acclaimed local and foreign experts. So far we've hosted famous and award-winning writers( Brian Aldiss, John Anthony West, Juliet E. McKenna, Carrie Vaughn and Lauren Beukes) and acclaimed scientists(Vladimir Paar, Marie-Luise Heuser, Korado Korlević, Davor Horvatić, Snježana Paušek Baždar, Antonio Šiber, …).

What drives us to organize Istrakon every year and inspires us to continue is a desire to educate the public about science fiction and fantasy and bring them closer to those genres which we consider a great sources of inspiration and creativity, especially for the children and the young(who often through science fiction and fantasy become more avid readers and some even start to write themselves) and we put great effort into to point out the significance of science fiction as a source of many ideas and inovations(some old science fiction ideas became our reality in the meantime). To promote the literary aspect of Istrakon we organize a literary competiton for the science fiction or fantasy stories which also serves as a way young writers can gain recognition and get motivated for further literary work.
