Are there any new events coming up in Oceania?
« on: September 18, 2015, 03:22:44 am »
What about local meet-ups?

I haven't seen anything new posted here in a while.

If an event has a website, please share it.

Do any Steampunk groups still exist in Sydney or has it fizzled to a plop. Did a search on Google, but alas, not much happening.

Call the Department of Imaginary Problems, (DoIP) and ask for me. I also freelance as an expert specializing in matters of a general nature.

Oamaru  Often has something going as does Wellington   , in the New Zealand  region.

 [ some may argue that most New Zealand towns are caught in a quasi  Victorian  time warp ]

Yes
And in 2021 they will find out Steampunk died about a year ago.

I can advise the CubaDupa festival will be on again in Wellington on 19-20 March 2016.

CubaDupa is a City Council-supported street festival which sees three (or more) city blocks turned into one big street party. Capital! Steampunk ties into CubaDupa as our big annual event.

Once again next year we'll be presenting Splendid Teapot Racing, with New Zealand's largest asemblage of racing teapots outside Oamaru. This time there'll be a world first: teapot sheepdog trials. And if you want to know more about how that works you'll have to come and see it. Bring your own racing teapot - there's always room for more.

As part of the main festival there'll be music, dancing, street food and ample oportunities for steampunks to swan about and have their photos taken innumerable times.

Keep an eye on capitalsteampunknz.org for updates. We're hoping to schedule a racing teapot practice and build session early in 2016 to prepare everybody for CubaDupa.

Whatever did we do before retro-futurism?

 The thought of sheep dogs   chasing motorised teapots round and round  sounds  quite entertaining

Not quite what we had in mind, but possibly another variation.

I may say that dogs are somewhat puzzled when approached by a racing teapot.  I speak from recent experience.

 An accidental discovery  I am sure   ;) I can imagine the result
