Nadeshicon, the Japanese cultural festival of Quebec City

Duality: A realm combining culture and pop culture

To all lovers of Japanese culture! THE spring event of 2013 is Festival Nadeshicon. During this 4th edition, members of Club Animé Québec (official Laval University student association since 1992) will organize a variety of activities to share their love of Japanese culture with the Quebec community.

This year we've got all bases covered: special guests, martial art demonstrations, traditional dances, food tasting, calligraphy, cosplay, a masquerade, anime and documentary screenings as well as live performances, panelists, dealers, artists and much more.

The festival is proud to present many interesting guest speakers. Tiffany Grant (http://tiffanygrant.eva-r.com/) , our North American guest of honor, will be on site to discuss her vast experience in the anime industry and much more, accompanied by Matt Greenfield (http://www.nadeshicon.ca/en/guests/) , a head figure that brought many of our beloved anime series at our at our doorsteps dubbed in English. There will be a fashion show displaying the evolution of Japanese fashion from traditional clothes to the many diverse styles created by the different subcultures (such as Harajuku). This will be followed by a display of clothing by Putré-Fashion (http://www.putrefashion.net/en/index.php) , an alternative line of clothes created by a Quebec designer. Love Cosplay Magazine (https://www.facebook.com/LoveCosplayMagazine?fref=ts) will also be present to discuss his magazine and photograph cosplayers all weekend long. A return from Hoshi☆Furu (http://ca.myspace.com/hoshifuru) , a J-Rock inspired band from Toronto will certainly liven up the mood. Mel Gosselin (http://cetacia.com/) , Quebec author of Cétacia, will be on site to discuss her 2nd publication. You'll see familiar faces from previous editions such as Richard Fournier (http://recif.litterature.org/recherche/ecrivains/fournier-richard-1343/) , haiku poet; Kayo Yasuhara (http://www.komachimontreal.com/) doing traditional dances; Ryunosuke Yamazumi (http://www.bigballjuggler.com/home.html) , juggler and of course, Amitié Québec-Japon will also be present, offering many Japanese themed activities.

I really want to be there this year!!! I had to miss last year because of my boy but I'll do my best to be there. Do you need any help?

It would be an honor to have you attend the festival this year jusdepomme. We always need help to fill up our panels with cosplayers willing to share their passion of their art. You can write to panels@nadeshicon.ca if you are interested to hold a panel.

We are also interested to have a few cosplayers as possible guests for the festival, so you can write to me directly at maxime@nadeshicon.ca if you are interested in this option. I'm thinking maybe one local, one from Montreal and one outside of Quebec would be neat. I can't guarantee if just one or many will be selected, but I'd sure love to see lots of veterans such as yourself apply to encourage others to come and discover the cosplay aspect of our festival here in Quebec City.

There are also other positions available, so you can always contact benevoles@nadeshicon.ca if you want to get more involved as a volunteer throughout the festival, or dealers@nadeshicon.ca if you want to sell a few things as an artist or dealer.

Oh, and you can also contact alexandra@nadeshicon.ca if you want to help promote the festival by distributing some of our flyers that we can send by mail.

There are tons of things people can do to get involved in this cultural event and any help is more than appreciated.

Hi Mokmo. Mel Gosselin wasn't a guest at Nadeshicon in 2012. She had exams to take care of and couldn't commit to the festival. This year she will be offering panels and hold a table where fans can come and see her. It will be her first time actually giving a panel, as even at Otakuthon she only held her table to sell her novels.
