Cat Meet and Greet

So you’ve found yourself at a Meet and Greet panel. You’ll notice that these panels may or may not have a designated host. The purpose of a meet and greet panel, is to meet other people who share a common “thing”! That thing could be that your fursona or characters share the same species, or maybe you share a similar hobby, or interest! You might be new to the fandom and just want to make some new friends, or you’ve been around a while and want to share some insight and stories with other likeminded furs! So here’s just a few tips on what to do at a Meet and Greet!
 
Step 1: Introductions! Go around and everyone should introduce themselves, you can give your real name, or fandom name, whatever you prefer people call you. Briefly tell everyone a little about yourself in relation to the topic of the meet and greet, ie: how long have you been into a certain hobby, or if it’s a species panel tell the group about your character, or your passion for the animal.
 
Step 2: Just start talking! Take turns telling stories, or asking questions about the topic at hand. If you’re talking about wolves, maybe discuss their conservation or interesting facts about the animal, or even just why you like being a wolf! If the topic is photography ask questions like how you can achieve X with your photos, while doing Y.
 
Step 3: No really, it’s that simple! The sky is the limit, and as long as everyone keeps talking, it’s a successful panel! Hopefully at the end of the panel you have a new friend who shares a similar interest as you! When the meet and greet has ended, please do you your part to make sure everyone has cleaned up after themselves, so that the next meet has a nice clean space! Also do try to be mindful of the time limits set, and if another group is waiting to use the space to start their panel, wrap things up! We hope you have fun, and thanks again for making our second year an awesome one!

Allowing others to share their struggles when it comes to battling depression and also being an artist at the same time. I believe that it is a very hard thing to do, especially when you have other people bringing you down on the other side.

Autism affects many in and out of the furry fandom. The goal of this panel is to help others understand what it is to be on the condition, How to handle it and what unprecedented opportunities exist for these amazing individuals. If you take nothing else from it perhaps the info presented can help clear up any misunderstandings one has had with other furs who may or may not be on the Autistic Spectrum.

This panel would focus on those people in the community who have more than 2 characters but, that is not a requirement to attend. Focusing on the process behind the creation of new characters and how the characters relate to them on a personal level. Sometimes it can be hard to express yourself with just one character when in the fandom you can be anything, and express any part of yourself that you want to express. Given the many characters that people may have i would also like to discuss how they choose which character of theirs might fit into commissioning artwork, whether the artist fits a certain character, or a scene might match a character better.
